Over the course of nine years of scouting, starting as a Boy Scout at eight years old, Nick McManana has been instilled with a simple idea.

"The lesson that I have learned is that volunteering and giving back to the community is something that I want as a part of my life," he humbly shared with the SAS Board of Education last night.

Now as an Eagle Scout candidate and a junior at Saline High School, McManana is pursuing that idea through his Eagle Scout project, which is intended to provide an opportunity for fun on school grounds for a range of folks.
