Eagle Scout Jonathan Wilkes

Jonathan Wilkes is a recent graduate of Freedom High School who just started college at Las Positas and will later transfer to UC Merced. His love of the outdoors has led to his goal of working with the National Forest Service. He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 298 in Oakley, and received his Eagle Rank on June 23. His Court of Honor was held on Jan. 10, at Scout Hall, in Bethel Island. For his project, Jonathan directed a large group of volunteers to create a trellis archway for the Freedom High School garden to draw attention to the work the students are doing in the garden. In addition to his 37 merit badges, Jonathan completed 78 nights of camping, 78 service hours and hiked 96 miles. Jonathan has also earned his amateur radio operator license and has participated in two 50-mile canoe trips and numerous camping and backpacking trips.
