Adam Greer and Samuel Amaya were honored by the Moreno Valley City Council on February 7 for serving as an example to other young people by achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.
Greer and Amaya are both members of Moreno Valley's Boy Scout Troop 210.
In order to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, Amaya and Greer completed projects to improve their neighborhoods and community.
Greer’s Eagle project included painting a multicolored map of the United States, complete with state capitals, at Ramona Elementary School. He also provided teaching aids to mark locations, compass points and distances to further enrich the students' experience.
For his Eagle project, Amaya painted a mural of the world at Ramona Elementary School to encourage students to want to see the world. He also provided teachers with resource books that featured geography lessons.
