Local Boy Scouts attain Eagle rank

A pair of Dripping Springs boy scouts received the organizations highest honor earlier this month after they earned their Eagle Scout designation for their service projects.

Joseph Kadlecek and Cameron Adkins, who both graduated from Dripping Springs High in June, were awarded the Eagle Scout rank during a ceremony put on by Troop 101 in July.

Kadlecek earned his Eagle rank by renovating a goat stable in the Dream of Hopes Ranch in Dripping Springs.

Kadlecek used railroad timbers as a base for the water retention system for the project, as well as the gutters. A water tank running into an animal water trough was also designed and installed.

The walls of the stable were painted to increase the aesthetics and complete the project.

Kadlecek will attend Texas State this fall and his hobbies include backpacking, music, restoring cars and playing the guitar.

Adkins, who will be attending Texas A&M University in College Station this fall, earned his Eagle rank by constructing an 8-foot Chimney Swift tower at Charro Ranch Park.

The tower was made with textured wood, steel legs, plywood, wood beams and concrete.

In addition, Adkins installed a ventilation and insulation system, a sun collar and a predator guard. A hardy board siding was assembled and painted to match nearby buildings.

Adkins’ hobbies include backpacking, theater and improvisation and playing the guitar.
