Scout and School Alumni builds outdoor classroom at El Dorado Hills School
Golden Hills students and staff recently recognized an alum who never forgot his years at the El Dorado Hills school. Jonathan Heideman of Boy Scout Troop 193 recently built an outdoor classroom there for his Eagle Scout project.
The Jesuit high school sophomore attended Golden Hills School from kindergarten through eighth grade and described the three components he completed for the project: develop a plan, fundraise and direct the project.
“Mr. Blum (now retired Golden Hills science teacher) helped me research outdoor classrooms and I felt inspired by one with a whiteboard,” Heideman said. “Then my troop helped me raise $300 holding a car wash at Food 4 Less in Cameron Park last May. My favorite part of the whole thing was leading my troop members.”
