Ben Franklin Academy rising senior Maxwell Greenbaum is the junior assistant scoutmaster for Troop 631. At a court of honor recently, he was awarded the William T. Hornaday Award patch for work in conservation in the field of invasive species. He is one of only 85 scouts nationally to receive this award.
He also was awarded both the Dr. Bernard Harris bronze medal and the Thomas Alva Edison silver medal for his work in STEM by completing many tasks and programs in technology, math, agriculture and engineering, and for administering STEM programs to Cub Scouts. He is the first scout in his troop to be presented with any of these, let alone all three.
In addition, he received the Paul Bunyan Woodsman award for conservation, a second Eagle silver palm for earning 30 additional merit badges and the National Outdoor Award for riding.
His family and Ben Franklin Academy are very proud of him.
