JOEL and DARREN KERSEY, West Sacramento boys who have completed the culminating event in earning ‘Eagle Scout’ status

NEWS-LEDGER — APRIL 25, 2012 –

Two West Sacramento brothers completed their Eagle Scout community service projects this month. Joel and Darren Kersey each assembled a group of volunteers and planned and directed a work project at a park in Sacramento.

Joel is a sophomore at River City High School, and Darren is a student at Southport Elementary. Both are “Life Scouts” and members of Boy Scout Troop 43 of the Golden Empire Council in West Sacramento.

Joel organized and supervised volunteers in repairing and rehabbing several tables in the park.

Darren planned and directed the pouring of a new concrete pad, construction of a masonry hot ash box, and installation of a new grill at the park.

  Besides the volunteers, the projects received support from a number of sponsors who provided materials.

The projects are a requirement for the boys to earn the rank of Eagle Scout – highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America.
