Loitz achieves Eagle Scout rank
Kevin Loitz, a member of BSA Troop 2810 chartered at Salem Lutheran Church, was recently awarded the Eagle Rank, the highest award achievable in Boy Scouts. Kevin is the son of Jeff and Deb Loitz of Sycamore and a junior at Sycamore High School. Kevin’s Eagle Project, “Instruments For Children,” collected unused instruments from the community, refurbished and cleaned them, and donated a total of 55 instruments to the Sycamore School District Music Department to be loaned to students who cannot afford to rent an instrument. Kevin’s formal Eagle Ceremony was held at Sycamore United Methodist Church. Kevin plans to remain active in scouting, with both Troop 2810 and Venture Crew 101.
