David Parkhill of Boy Scout Troop 85 at St. Paul Church in Westerville, recently was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout.

Parkhill's Eagle Scout project involved the construction of a reflection garden and stone walkway that border a natural wetland area at Heritage Church in Westerville. The garden contains several perennials, plants, a bird bath, stepping stones and two glider rocker benches. Parkhill also coordinated the planning and fundraising and organized volunteers to help with the construction.

Parkhill, the son of Don and Sheila Parkhill of Westerville, is a student at St. Charles Preparatory School, where he is involved in cross country and box office duties for the theater department. He is also a volunteer at Parkside Retirement Village in Westerville.
