Illinois American Water, Bolingbrook firefighters assist Eagle Scout
BOLINGBROOK — llinois American Water, Bolingbrook firefighters and local Boy Scouts joined forces to assist a young man in reaching for his dream of becoming an Eagle Scout.
James "Jorrelle" Moore, Jr. is a Bolingbrook High School student who reached out to IAW to provide assistance with his Eagle Scout Service Project which upon successful completion would allow his elevated ranking to Eagle Scout.
Moore’s project included installing hydrant markers in his community as a public safety service. IAW purchased 100 marker flags to identify fire hydrants to keep them visible for firefighters during the winter months when snow accumulates on them.
IAW field service technician Mark Faison volunteered his time for the project.
“Last week, we met to go over the specifics of the project where Moore would enlist about 30 people to help, including fellow Boy Scouts and Bolingbrook firefighters,” said Faison.
According to Faison, he gave a short training session to Moore and his volunteers on Saturday to show them how to properly install the markers.
“I determined the location for the project, gave Jorelle and his team maps and flags and they did a great job for their community,” he said.
“I’m very proud that our company could assist Jorrelle in his Eagle Scout project. Our employees take great pride in helping the communities we serve and Mark’s participation is another great example,” said IAW Senior Operations Manager Michael Smyth.
Moore is hopeful the successful completion of this project will earn him Eagle Scout ranking.
“It went great because of the volunteers and the water company and all their help. I couldn’t have done it without their support,” he said.
