Jackson Township
Cambria County, Pennsylvania

Eagle Scout Project (Keith Henry)


Keith Henry's Eagle Scout Project involved 200 hours of painting all of the fire hydrants in Jackson Township.  The project demonstrated leadership in that he had 16 other scouts and friends helping him with the painting.  In addition he made a map of all of the hydrants in the Township and presented it to the Jackson Township Water Authority.  Several of the hydrants along the State highways needed repainted due to the salt used on the roads over the winter.  In addition to becoming an Eagle Scout, Keith is a member of the National Honor Society, a three year letterman in both soccer and swimming, participates in track and field and is a mentor through the Outdoor Odyssey Program.

also involved painting two metal stakes


This hydrant along Route 271 involved re-painting some guiderail
 in order that the hydrant location could be easily visible.

Hydrants look good as new!

Special thanks to Keith Henry for doing an outstanding job!  When driving around the Township and seeing the brightly painted
hydrants, this is the result of of Keith's Eagle Scout Project.  Great work Keith!
