Local Boy Scout Kaulani Napoleon has earned his Eagle Scout Award and was recognized during a Court of Honor on Oct. at the Alpenglow LDS building.

Kaulani has been able to earn this prestigious award in four short years achieving all of his ranks here in Alaska. For his final service project, he led a donation campaign of education supplies for refugee children coming to Alaska.

Working with Refugee Assistance Integration Services, Kaulani developed a donation program where over 7,000 items were donated by the generous contributions of Eagle River residents, the Eagle River Walmart store, and friends/family across the Lower 48.

His goal was to create 150 kits; 50 for elementary, middle-school, and high-school aged children.  Not only did he achieve this goal, he was able to donate additional items such as backpacks, soccer balls, and shoes through everyone’s generosity.

Kaulani is currently a freshman at Chugiak High School; he enjoyed playing football this year at Chugiak and also plays in the school’s orchestra. With the help of his many local leaders from Boy Scouts, church, and his parents, Kaulani has reached this goal. Congratulations, Kaulani!
