School of Education, Alpha Phi Omega partner on Boy Scout Merit Badge College
The School of Education and the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity held a Boy Scout Merit Badge College for local Scouts.
A group of students from the School of Education and the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity hosted a Boy Scout Merit Badge College on Saturday, April 29.
Fifteen Boy Scouts from the area came to campus to work on Communication, Sustainability, Physical Fitness, and Personal Management merit badges. The classes were taught by Andrew VanHoof ‘17 and Glenn Kleinschmidt ‘19 (Physical Fitness); Ashley Jacks ‘18 and Sara Smythe ‘19 (Personal Management); Morgan Fleming '18 and Robert Feather ‘19 (Sustainability); and Julia Gerstenfeld '19 (Communication).
Jayna Coyle ‘17 worked with Allison Bryan, director of the Curriculum Resources Center, to coordinate the day, and Shayna Nash ‘17 volunteered. The Boy Scouts and Elon students alike learned a lot and enjoyed the time together.
Several of the Scouts shared an interest in coming to another Merit Badge College at Elon again soon. We hope that this will be the beginning of a regular opportunity for our community!
