Henry Watson '20, William Blair '20, and Jack Loftus '20 traveled out to Lantana, Texas to work on a toy drive project with the Sadie Keller Foundation.

 

One of ESD's Founding Tenets is service, and it's always a joy to see that demonstrated in our students. Over Christmas break, Henry Watson '20, William Blair '20, and Jack Loftus '20 traveled out to Lantana, Texas to work on a toy drive project with the Sadie Keller Foundation.

The organization was founded two years ago by Sadie Keller, a 10-year-old leukemia patient, and her family. When Sadie was discharged from the hospital right before Christmas, her concern wasn't focused on her own health, but rather focused on whether or not Santa would remember to deliver presents to her friends at the hospital. The Foundation originally started as a toy drive for Children's Hospital, but over the past two years has grown exponentially. This year, they collected over 10,000 new gifts and expanded to include four hospitals as recipients.

Watson was so inspired by the work that he decided to film the operation and create a video for the Sadie Keller Foundation. Click here to see his video. Great work, Eagle!

An ESD junior recently completed his Eagle Scout Project in the Quarry over the holiday break.

 

Congratulations to ESD student Christopher Talbot '19, member of Boy Scout Troop 577, who completed his Eagle Scout Project over the holiday break. 

Talbot's project gives access to a portion of the Quarry which was previously difficult to access. He, along with ESD members of his Boy Scout Troop, built a path, stairs, and a "pad" along the Swann Building retaining wall next to the Quarry using cedar logs and wood chips. Surplus wood chips were laid down near the butterfly garden, in the outdoor chapel, and along a portion of the path from the outdoor chapel to the Gill Library. Additional wood chips were also spread in the raised garden area and in the chicken coop to ensure nothing went to waste.

The wood chips for the project were donated by Arborilogical Services of Dallas, Inc. With this new accessibility of certain areas of the Quarry, Director of Outdoor Education Eddie Eason is hopeful that it can be utilized in upcoming classes and projects.
