Local Boy Scouts Donate Service to Country Lane

September 13, 2017, San Jose, CA:  The Moreland School District announced that Country Lane Elementary School was the recipient of new shaded benches, thanks to the volunteer service of local Boy Scouts, led by Life Scout Jeffrey Zang of Troop 330 in Campbell.  Built around existing solar panel structures, six benches were built and installed for the students to use during their recess and lunch time.

“Jeffrey approached me and asked if he could do a project at our school,” said Principal Keri Billings.  “We brainstormed some ideas that would benefit the students and Jeffrey came up with the great idea of building benches under the solar panel structures.”

Jeffrey, along with several current and former scouts, custom built the six benches to fit under the solar structures.  Built from smooth redwood, the benches were initially constructed off-site, then delivered and installed at Country Lane.  

“I am proud of what I have accomplished, “ said Jeffrey, “and hope these benches have inspired others to positively impact our community.”

Jeffrey Zang is a Junior at Archbishop Mitty High School.  Jeffrey previously attended Baker Elementary School and is currently a Life Scout with Troop 330 in Campbell, completing this project for his Eagle Scout Service Project.  As one of the older Life Scout members, Jeffrey works closely with his Senior Patrol Leader and Scoutmaster on his projects and service.  Jeffrey also holds the position of Junior Assistant Scoutmaster.
