TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WAWV/WTWO) – Saturday morning Senior George Shagley placed his final touches on a new river rock bed to beautify Gilbert Park.

The Gilbert Park beautification efforts was apart of Shagley’s last project to becoming an Eagle Scout.

“I wanted the park to look nicer,” Shagley said. ” it was especially bare around the flag pole, so I decided to build around that.”

Shagley went to the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce a year ago to to make his vision come to life. After countless meetings with the city, Shagley got the project done right before his graduation.

“With help from my Scouts the project labor only took about 3 hours,” Shagley said. “We used 12 blocks of bushes to surround the rock bed to represent the 12 Scout laws.”

Shagley said there is an exclusive amount of people who receive the highest scout honor.

“Not many high schoolers can say they’ve done something like this,” Shagley said.

Shagley plans to be pinned later this year.
