A freshman at San Clemente High School and member of Troop 872 in Laguna Niguel, Zane Pert was recently awarded his Eagle Scout rank from the Boy Scouts of America. Pert completed his Eagle Scout project at Shorecliffs Middle School, where he refurbished the school’s learning garden by rebuilding the frames and cages around five garden boxes. Pert joined the Boy Scouts in the sixth grade and has been an active member of his troop. To date, he has earned 61 merit badges. Pert has attended the National Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, and is looking forward to the opportunity of experiencing the high adventure bases of both Northern Tier (Ely, MN) and Philmont Scout Ranch (Cimarron, NM) this summer.
