Hi, my name is Kenny Kromer,
I am currently a Life Scout in Troop 1 West Groton and am currently working towards the rank of Eagle, the highest rank in scouting. I have been in Scouts since I was in first grade, that was 11 years ago! I have served as the Senior Patrol Leader of my troop in the past and am currently our troop's Order of the Arrow Representative. I have held this position in the troop for the past three years, which has made it possible for me to participate in various unique experiences. The Order of the Arrow is scoutings national honors society and promotes following the Scout Oath and Scout Law as well as camping and being in the outdoors. Currently, I am the Vice Chief of Catamount Lodge which is the Order of the Arrow lodge that services most of central Massachusetts. I am also an active member of Venture Crew 250 Harvard and am the Vice President. Over this past summer, I was on the Camp Wanocksett summer camp staff, which is one of Heart of New England Councils two camps. I also plan to work there next summer.
I am currently fundraising for my Eagle Scout Project, which is Sensory Boxes for children with special needs from Pre K- 12th grade, at several schools in the surrounding area. The primary school that will be benefiting from this project is the Squanacook Early Childhood Center in the North Middlesex School District. A sensory box is a box that is filled with all kinds of sensory items to help kids who have special needs work on their fine motor skills, dexterity skills, and thinking skills. This project is very close to me as I have been close with several kids who have special needs at my schools over the years. I am also currently in the Best Buddies program at my high school, which has provided a lot of inspiration for my project.
Thank you for considering supporting me and my endeavor to reach this high honor of Eagle Rank.
