Eagle Scout builds storage units for school

September 8, 2011

Travis Filicky, a 2005 graduate of West Boulevard Elementary School, constructed an Eagle Scout project for the building during the 2010-2011 school year. The project was completed during June 2011 and Filicky is now in line for his Eagle award.

Filicky, a junior this fall at Boardman High School, is a Boy Scout in Troop 60 from Westminster Presbyterian Church. He organized the planning, construction, and installation of storage cabinets for the school’s Student Snack Sack Program. The Snack Sack Program provides food to students on weekly and/or monthly basis for those who may be in need throughout the school year. School Principal Alphonse Cervello works with the Youngstown Community Food Bank to help provide and store food for this program.

The project was made up of four storage cabinets with five adjustable shelves and locks. In addition, a plague was purchased to recognize all contributors to the project.

“The addition of the cabinets allow for a larger and more organized food distribution system for our students and school families," Cervello said. "Travis has worked hard on his Eagle Scout project and hopefully realizes the difference that he has made in the lives of many of our students and their families.”

Filicky said this project would not have been possible without the assistance from Cervello; carpenter Dale Ritz; Ken Bagwell of Cabinet Works, who he donated his time and use of his shop for the project; and Filicky’s Scout leader Byron Harnishfeger as well as all of the businesses and organizations that helped fund the project.

Travis is the son of Ed and Lori Filicky.
