Congratulations to New Eagle Scout David Chapa!

When David Chapa, the son of owner­–operator Manuel Chapa, approached Sprint Waste Services to provide financial assistance for his Eagle Scout project, we were happy to be involved. Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is a high honor and the culmination of many years of work and dedication to the Boy Scouts, and we were glad to help David not only reach his goal but also improve his community in the process.

David identified a church in Needville, Texas, approximately 40 miles southwest of Houston, for his project. St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church is now the benefactor of a beautiful new front entrance, thanks to the hard work of David and his team of volunteers (pictured).

The Eagle Scout is the highest rank achievable in the Boy Scouts of America, a years-long process that ultimately culminates in the scout receiving his Eagle badge and medal. Although the Boy Scouts has been in existence for more than 100 years, only 4 percent of Boy Scouts have attained this distinction. One of the key parts of the process is the Eagle Scout service project, an opportunity for the scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a service project to benefit a religious institution, a school or his community. The scout must manage and lead all aspects of the Eagle project, recruiting volunteers and soliciting donors for the work.

“Sprint was happy to assist with David’s project, and we applaud his commitment and work ethic,” said Sprint Waste President Dave Nelson. “We are proud of David's accomplishment and congratulate David on a job well done!”
