Dalton Selhorst achieves rank of Eagle Scout

Press Staff Writer

        Dalton Selhorst, a member of Boy Scout Troop 314, in Elmore, achieved the rank of Eagle Scout on Sept. 24.
        For his Eagle Scout Project, Selhorst landscaped around the Harris-Elmore Public Library. He worked with Mike Knisely and Kelly O’Connor, of North Branch Nursery, in Pemberville, on the design and logistics of the landscaped beds.
        For the installation of the project, he had the help of his brother Dylan and father David. They installed new plants, revived existing beds, and then added mulch and stone to finish off the project.
        “The landscaping has been a nice addition to the library renovation and expansion, not only for its beauty, but for the prevention of soil stripping and safeguarding against fire combustion (using stone at the entrances),” said Jennifer Fording, library director.
        Becoming an Eagle Scout has been an ambition of Selhorst’s since he joined the Boy Scouts of America in the first grade. He has held many leadership positions within the troop and was nominated by his fellow scouts for the Order of the Arrow honor in 2018. He moved up through the ranks with his brother Dylan, who is also an Eagle Scout, and loves spending time outdoors hiking with his family.
        Selhorst is a junior at Woodmore High School and is an honor roll student. He is a student athlete and a member of the varsity football and track teams. He is also a member of the school symphonic chorale.
