Brian Henion

North Carolina

Brian Henion, Rugby Middle School, Hendersonville, was recognized for restoring the badly neglected Leander and Vernon Johnson Memorial near his school. He made its restoration his Eagle Scout project, for the benefit of his community and as a tribute to the Johnsons, who donated the land for his school. Brian set up work parties that removed dead trees, built a new walkway, added a park bench, and planted new shrubs and flowers.
