Christopher William Marine, son of Mary and Greg Marine of Antioch, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which was presented at a Court of Honor ceremony at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Antioch on April 6.
Christopher, 18, is a senior at Springstone Community High School in Lafayette and a member of Boy Scout Troop 247 under the leadership of Scoutmaster Ravi Shankeran.
For his Eagle Scout community service project, Christopher built three raised planting tables that will allow people with disabilities to participate in the Holy Rosary Catholic Church and Higgins Funeral Chapel Joint Community Garden. Produce grown in the garden is distributed to low-income community members.
During his Scouting career, Christopher completed a Fages II 20-mile endurance hike and participated as a Leave No Trace trainer, which teaches Scouts to maintain the integrity and character of the outdoors for all living things.
