Whittell grad receives Eagle Scout rank, Rotary award
June 9, 2010
Stateline resident Chris Crawford received the Eagle Scout rank during a ceremony June 3 at Our Lady of Tahoe Church.
In addition to receiving the Eagle Scout award, Bill Kolstad from the South Tahoe Rotary Club awarded Crawford with a special Scouting Rotary Club Award.
Crawford’s Eagle Scout project was to make tourists more “bear aware” in the Tahoe Village area in and around the Stagecoach ski lift on Tramway and Quaking Aspen. He replaced missing and old signs with more readable signs. Both the Nevada Department of Wildlife and the Bear League added to his signs. Signs of Tahoe helped with design and colors. Tahoe Village Homeowners Association representatives Carol Treanor and Mike Paulson coordinated the new signs with Crawford. There were many donations made from the community to support his project.
On June 6, Crawford left the Lake Tahoe area to attend military school at The Citadel in South Carolina.
