Congratulations to senior Jacob Treinen who earned the rank of Eagle Scout on February 15! According to the Boy Scouts of America, the rank represents a milestone of accomplishment—perhaps without equal—that is recognized across the country and even the world. “Eagle Scout” is not just an award; it is a state of being. Those who earned it as boys continue to earn it every day as men. That is why an Eagle Scout IS an Eagle Scout—not was.

Jacob has spent ten years in scouting and finalized it with his Eagle Project by making 50 blankets for children at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. The blankets were made to help alleviate the psychological trauma of being in the hospital.
Jacob is the son of Todd and Sharon Treinen of Union Township in Batavia.
