TMI student earns Eagle Scout rank with Botanical Garden project

For a project adding a new feature to the San Antonio Botanical Garden, Wallace Schmuck, a sophomore at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest attainable from the Boys Scouts of America.

Schmuck made plans for a new Endangered Plant bed; he and his crew of other Scouts, friends and family cleared the area, tilled and mulched the soil, irrigated the area and transplanted endangered plants there.

A member of Troop 809, chartered through Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church, Schmuck was awarded his Eagle rank in a letter dated Jan. 3. He will be recognized at an Eagle Court of Honor ceremony, to be held April 11 in Trinity Baptist Church.
