Johnathon Richard Lewis, son of Scott and Tracy Lewis, of Rexburg, has earned his Eagle rank. A member of Boy Scout Troop 156, he has earned 21 merit badges. For his Eagle project, John wanted to help the families who go to the safe house at the Family Crisis Center. Often times, there are families who stay there that have outside animals. Although there is a home for the family, there wasn’t a home for the animals. John came up with a plan to build a dog run for them. He contacted several local businesses, who then generously donated nearly all the supplies he needed to complete his project. Now, because of John and his amazing Eagle project, the animals who go to the safe house also have a safe place to stay.
