Roadrunner’s first Zoom Eagle Scout, Abel Nuñez from Troop 93, Chartered by the National Shooting Complex.
Abel is a music lover. He has played the double bass since fourth grade and is currently playing in the Taft High School Varsity Orchestra. When the time came to prepare for his Eagle project, Abel asked his former middle school orchestra teacher if he could do something to help the orchestra department. They talked about how difficult it was for the students to take the basses in and out of the lockers in the orchestra room and came up with the idea of building a bass rack to facilitate the process. He wanted to make it easier for the students to get ready for class. His middle school orchestra teacher helped Abel acquire an old bass rack that was going to be discarded. With the help of a local woodworker, Abel was then able to develop a design based on the old bass rack.
With Abel’s great leadership, a team of Scouts and adults built an improved bass rack. After that, he presented the rack to the orchestra teacher at Briscoe Middle School who was very thankful for Abel’s contribution!
