Andrew Michael Robinett, the son of Mike and Jill Robinett of Concord, earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which was presented in Court of Honor ceremonies July 7, at the Church of the Resurrection in Pleasant Hill.

He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 405, under the leadership of Scoutmaster Michael McDowell.

For his Eagle Scout community service project, Robinett built 10 wooden bookcases -- using his older brother's custom garage cabinet shop -- for the Pleasant Hill Library book purchase center. Each of the units had four shelves and were approximately 4 feet wide by 5 feet tall, and can be seen daily in use at the library. He identified funding, and spent time and effort in designing, building and installing the bookcases. He measured, drew sketches, rallied volunteers and communicated with the library staff.

During his Scouting career, Robinett spent 75 nights camping, and hiked the Rim of the Bay, including Mount Wittenberg, Mount Diablo and Mount Tamalpais. He was in Scouting honor societies -- Order of the Arrow and Tribe of Torqua - Brave, Warrior and Chief, and Wolfeboro Pioneers. He participated at Camp Wolfeboro and Cherry Valley, ArrowCorps5, and in the Yosemite Half Dome Hike, National Jamboree and Venture Crew.

Robinett, 18, is a 2012 graduate of Clayton Valley High School in Concord.
