Jacob Huntsman Eagle Scout

LA GRANDE — Jacob Huntsman, a senior at La Grande High School and a member of Boy Scout Troop 586, stands beside the 40-foot flagpole that was installed at the new LHS track, thanks to his Eagle Scout project.

The La Grande School District agreed to pay for half of the project, and Huntsman raised the other half. He contacted Rep. Greg Baretto, who donated the large flag. OTEC assisted with transporting and installing the pole and flag.

“A lot of people helped me get this flagpole here,” Huntsman said. “I’m very grateful to live in a place where people are so giving and helpful. I can’t wait to see that flag waving when we have our first track meet this spring.”
