SHS Student Eagle Scout Project Benefits Dennis Elementary

Ronnie Mazuk & Terrah Hunter

While choosing a beneficiary to work with for his Eagle Scout Project, it was important for Springboro High School (SHS) Sophomore Ronnie Mazuk to choose an organization that played a significant role in his life. Springboro Schools’ Dennis Elementary, where Ronnie attended in grades 2-5, was the recipient.

Ronnie’s Eagle Scout Project consisted of constructing four (4) mobile hand sanitizing stations to be donated to and housed at Dennis Elementary to help reduce the spread of germs and illness within the school. Many of Ronnie’s fellow scouts volunteered to help Ronnie build the stations.

“Ronnie holds fond memories of his teachers and the support they offered while at Dennis Elementary,” said Tricia Mazuk, Intervention Specialist at Dennis Elementary and Ronnie’s Mother. “Completing his Eagle Scout Project with Dennis Elementary gave (Ronnie) a chance to give back to an organization that gave him so much.”

At their November meeting, Springboro Schools’ Board of Education heard from Ronnie who presented on his Eagle Scout Project.

The entire project, which was completed in four stages, took about a year to plan and complete. In stage one, Ronnie had to create an original design of how the stations would be constructed. Once materials were purchased, Ronnie led his fellow scouts in constructing the stations. Next, Ronnie and the scouts painted each station. Finally, the stations were delivered to Dennis Elementary right before the start of the new school year. During each stage, Ronnie had to lead and guide his fellow scouts to complete the project. “Without their help and support this project could not have happened,” said Ronnie Mazuk.

Thank you to the numerous individuals, organizations, and companies for their generous donations: Synergy Chiropractic, Springboro Chamber of Commerce, Nelson and Kathy Runge, Springboro Lions Club, Class 101, Custom Connections, Darryl Hams, Shirley J. Finley, The Home Depot, and Dan Schreiter.  In addition, Lowe's generously allowed Ronnie to purchase the needed materials at cost.
