Many view being a part of Boy Scouts as a hobby to do while you’re young.
Tim and Suzanne Wolf of Ahwatukee announced that their son, Alex, 13, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest honor in the Boy Scouts of America. Wolf began scouting as a Cub Scout with Pack 879 at Kyrene de los Cerritos Elementary and earned his Arrow of Light, the highest rank in Cub Scouting, when he was 10. He then bridged into Boy Scout Troop 14, which meets at Esperanza Lutheran Church. His Eagle Project consisted of building a wall within the offices of The 100 Club in order to create a therapy room for police officers and firefighters to meet with counselors. The 100 Club is a nonprofit organization that provides immediate assistance to fallen and injured police and fire personnel and their families following a critical incident.

Congratulations to the winter guard teams from Corona del Sol High School and Desert Vista High School for taking first and second place in the Arizona State Winter Guard Championship on April 6. These two teams have been competing all season and have forged what can best be described as a “friendly rivalry.” On the floor, they gave their best and used the competition to push each other to higher performance levels. When each competition was over, they could often be seen hanging out together and forming friendships. The season is over with a terrific showing on behalf of Tempe Union High School District. This level of achievement is only possible with a strong commitment to excellence and willingness to put in many hours of hard work week after week.
An Andean bear cub recently had its first check-up with Phoenix Zoo vets. After patiently waiting for more than three months, they found out the cut is a boy. Rio, the mother bear, is doing an excellent job raising her young cub. Recently, for the first time in the presence of zookeepers, Rio let go of the cub, stepped away and allowed the cub to be briefly on its own. Keepers were able to capture video of the cub taking some of his first steps, which you can watch at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkwv-n9KspU.
