Holy Ghost Prep student Schuyler Cauley becomes an Eagle Scout
Holy Ghost Prep sophomore Schuyler Cauley recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank anyone can receive in the Boys Scouts of America.
In order to attain Eagle Scout status, Cauley—a member of Troop 29 in Newtown—had to complete 22 or more merit badges, including those on citizenship, emergency preparedness, personal fitness, first aid, personal management, cooking, and family life. In addition, Cauley had to design, plan, and execute a significant Eagle service project in the community as well as fulfill leadership positions in their troop.
For his Eagle Project, Cauley directed the completion of a large mural at St. Ignatius in Yardley. An Eagle project is the opportunity for a Boy Scout to demonstrate leadership of others while performing a project for the benefit of his community. This is the culmination of the Eagle Scout candidate’s leadership training, and it requires a significant effort on his part.
“Holy Ghost Prep is fortunate to have many Boys Scouts among its student body each year,” says John Fitzpatrick ’89, the chair of HGP’s religion department. “Congratulations to Schuyler Cauley on earning their Eagle Scout rank this year. We’re really proud of him.”
It has been quite a spring from Cauley. In addition to the Eagle Scout news, Cauley recently participated in Bucks County Community College version of Shark Tank called the “Start Me Up” Challenge. As part of the second annual competition, he had to present his business model and operations of his company, SC Card Company. He placed in the top five of over 80 applicants.
Cauley’s SC Cards create handmade cards for various occasions. The company gives 5 percent of its proceeds to charities working to help those suffering from depression.
