VISTA, N.Y. John Jay High School senior Jimmy O'Reilly became Vista troop's newest Eagle Scout at his recent Board Of Review.
OReillys Eagle Scout project involved creating and coordinating a senior citizen outreach program for the youth membership for Leos Club, an offshoot of the Lewisboro Lions Club. He established a network of students to serve the needs of many seniors in Lewisboro.
Working with the town and the senior community, he identified and personally participated in home-maintenance projects, winter and fall cleanup, as well as social visits. He created the template for the ongoing program allowing future Lewisboro Leos to replicate and continue delivering assistance to Lewisboro seniors.
A National Honor Society member and athletic standout at John Jay High School, OReilly has committed to the football and baseball programs at Wesleyan University, which he will attend next fall.
