Central Florida resident Nicholas Wallace of the Boy Scouts of America was recently recognized with the Dr. Phillips Charities Eagle Scout Project of the Year. 

Wallace completed an Eagle Scout project supporting Covenant House Florida, an Orlando nonprofit organization that serves runaway, homeless and at-risk youth under the age of 21. Dr. Phillips Charities participates in a match grant for several Eagle Scout projects, and Wallace’s was chosen as the most outstanding.

“It was really special to me, because I was honestly not really expecting it,” Wallace said. “It’s just an honor to be able to recognized by such a great charity like Dr. Phillips, because they help a lot of scouts like me.

“It was unexpected and very enjoyable,” Wallace’s father, Tom Wallace, said. “As a dad, it makes me proud.”

The project involved building new picnic tables for an outdoor common area and shelving for a boys game areas, along with painting a boys bathroom.
