An Eagle Scout project requires planning and oversight by the aspiring Eagle and participation from other Scouts. Louis Gagnon, left, works with fellow Scouts on the project at St. Mary Magdalene.

St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church has a much improved storage unit thanks to Louis R. Gagnon.

Gagnon put together an Eagle Scout project focusing on the church’s storage unit. He worked – and led other Scouts – in creating shelving for the outdoor unit. The Scouts also built a ramp that leads into the unit.

Extra effort was made to make sure the project will have a long life. Rather than using wood for the ramp, the ramp is engineered plastic board placed atop pressure-treated wood on a concrete foundation.

Gagnon is a member of Troop 2193. He passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review on Oct. 17 – just 10 days before his 14th birthday.

Gagnon, who will be receiving his Eagle Scout awards in a few days, is in the eighth grade at Central Christian School.

He is the son of Allan and Alice Gagnon of Newnan.
