I got an email from the very proud father of a young man, who is a sophomore at Panther Creek High School, and I couldn't resist sharing it here.
Nick, a Life Scout in Troop 152, is raising money for the project through Indiegogo.com, a crowd-funding site where people can pledge money toward various projects. He needs to raise $800. At last check, he's raised more than $500.
"The reason I am doing my project is to demonstrate and learn about leadership, but to also help out the Piedmont Wildlife Center," he wrote me in an email. "They use the chickens that live in the coop for their various education programs. The current coop is in disrepair and I am building a new one so that their chickens can avoid frostbite in winter and overheating in summer."
