Building on the work of an earlier Eagle Scout, Solanco High School student Billy Guhl has completed work on the project that will help him earn scouting's highest rank.
"It is a fitness trail that was done by another scout," Guhl said. "I refurbished it, moved a couple of stations, and made it a bit shorter. I took everything out and started from scratch. The signs [for each station] are original but I had to clean them and I had to replace one [of the signs]."
With one school construction project well underway, Solanco School District is almost ready to start another.
