Jack Bevis, a senior at Pepperell High School, has completed his Eagle Scout project and students at Pepperell Middle School will benefit for many years to come.  Bevis had many options available to him as he considered the subject for his Eagle project.  Since his parents are educators and he was a product of Pepperell schools, he decided to build two picnic tables for Pepperell Middle. "These tables are anchored into a brick and concrete base and their sturdy construction will benefit children from this community for many years," stated Becky McCoy, principal of Pepperell Middle.  "They can be used by classes for instruction or for students or teachers to enjoy meals outside."  

Bevis handled all aspects of the project as he dug the foundation for the new tables, laid the brick and mortar, and prepared the base structure.  He also built the two picnic tables with treated wood and anchored them onto the brick base. Bevis plans to attend Southern Poly or Georgia Tech after graduation from Pepperell High and pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering. Bevis' parents are Scott Bevis, a math teacher at Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy and former teacher at PMS; and Penny Bevis, a science teacher at Pepperell Middle. 

Bevis is a member of Troop 113, and his scout leaders are Andy Davis and Thad Watters.  He previously won the World Conservation Award and was accepted into the Order of the Arrow. Bevis has been a scout for seven years.
