The Troop 208 Eagle Scout tradition continues
LAUREL — Nolan Ohlrich has spent a good portion of his summers growing up at the ball field.
This experience has influenced his Eagle Scout project. Ohlrich, a senior at Laurel-Concord-Coleridge, recently completed his project in hopes of bringing shade for the fans and players at the softball field here in town.
Ohlrich built a 20’ x 14’ tin shade for the bleachers at the softball field. He also brought a face-lift to the bleachers and dugout benches with a fresh coat of paint.
“There aren’t many trees at that field, so the structure will provide shade for the fans, as well as help create some shade down the third base line,” he said.
Boy Scouts has been a part of Ohlrich’s family. Both his dad, Gene, and his brother, Lathan, are Eagle Scouts. The elder Ohlrich has been the leader for the boys during their participation in the program.
“I have learned lots of useful life skills through Boy Scouts. I have enjoyed being with my friends and representing our community during my time in the program,” he said.
Outside of Boy Scouts, Ohlrich is involved in football, wrestling, track, baseball, Skills USA, FBLA, Art Club, Spanish Club, and Student Council.
Upon graduation in the Spring, Ohlrich plans to go to Northeast Community College for the Utility Line Program.
Ohlrich is the son of Gene and Angie Ohlrich of Belden.
