Springboro High School (SHS) Senior Jacob Balek recently completed his Eagle Scout Project for Troop 7. Jacob focused his efforts on building much needed furniture items for the Springboro Strings Program.
Jacob constructed a new conductor’s podium and two (2) instrument storage racks, with the help of volunteers, that now serve to protect our school instruments and keep the learning environment organized. The podium aids students in seeing the conductor more clearly, which ultimately brings more unity and clarity to the rehearsal experience.
In addition to this work, Jacob has also drawn up blueprints that will be donated to the Springboro Orchestra Association (SOA) for more storage racks to be constructed in the future, as needed.
This gift of furniture has been a much appreciated upgrade to the Strings classroom, and has saved the SOA money which can now be used on more additional student needs.
