SOUTH WHITLEY — John Langmaid, IV was awarded his Eagle Scout rank at a ceremony held at Whitko High School March 21.

Langmaid, a student at WHS, planned, surveyed, organized, and helped build a 65-foot-long, 5-foot-wide Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant sidewalk.

The project, which was completed during July 2012, was done for the school as his Eagle Scout project.

He earned the Eagle rank Sept. 13, 2012. The sidewalk gives disabled students access to the school and ease to leave the school during exercise and emergency situations.
