Sixteen year old, Fremd High School student, Zachary Matuszczak will be honored by Troop 209 with the prestigious Eagle Scout Award on Jan. 6th in Inverness.

Zachary has successfully completed his Eagle Scout Project, a Creative Arts Therapy Project which was donated to a local hospital. In addition to his work on his Eagle Project, Zachary donated several hundred hours of community service to Hoffman Estates and the surrounding suburbs.

To pay it forward, Zachary selected a project that would benefit local children. With the help of fellow Scouts and parents, he donated over 208 medical dolls to terminally ill and traumitized

children.

As a small child, Zachary had a serious eye injury and remembered his ride in the ambulance to St. Alexis. A Hoffman Estates Paramedic gave him a stuffed animal during his ride to the hospital. Zachary wanted to give back to his community by helping others.

This recognition is only earned by less than 5% of Boy Scouts and the first Eagle Scout who received this honor dated back to 1912.
