From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — A local teen is now an Eagle Scout. Alex Karmondi, 16, of Boy Scout Troop 216, earned Eagle status after years of dedication and hard work.
For his project, Karmondi built two picnic tables, with attached benches and a wooden garbage can frame. The items are placed on the mall in Trussville.
His parents, Kimball & Karen Karmondi, said, “We are beyond proud of all Alex’s hard work and his achievements. He has always loved camping, hiking, biking, swimming, etc. that scouting has offered. But he also enjoyed all that he learned while working on merit badges and the life lessons that he learned along the way on his Scouting journey,” they said in a statement.
Karmondi’s father, Kimball, serves as assistant scoutmaster for Troop 216. Kimball Karmondi said his son also exhibited leadership skills during his project.
