Emily Roe, Unit Lone Scout 6355, Pickford, MI, completed her Eagle Bpoard of Review on May 2, 2022.
In her words, “My project involved gathering all Pickford Class Alumni photos (Class Composites) and creating ones for the few past years that we’re never created. I used my local Pickford Museum to gather any photos I couldn’t find in the school and I took pictures of them and adjusted them to be digital. Now Pickford Public Schools has all of the available class composites digitally on a flash drive. It can be added to forever as well as make copies of. Once the school is done with the construction they plan to print and frame everything to hang in the halls. Coincidentally, my class is the 100th Class graduating from Pickford this year 2022. We would have never known this information if I hadn’t done this project. My family is also very involved in Pickford, they are the first family to help Mr. Pickford found and establish the town of Pickford. Everything was funded by the school, and I asked some of Pickford Troop 121 to help along with some other volunteers from the community. There we’re no composites for the classes of 2015 and the present. So I had the school secretary (Mrs. Brace), look through the class photo discs and sorted them out by graduating year and name. The pictures had to be in alphabetical order and look neat. The program we used to do so was Microsoft Publisher.
But overall, I am very glad I could find so much history in the school, and now everyone can see their class or relatives. Everything is available for free, to view on the Pickford Public Schools website under the History tab. I am still missing some years, but I have had people already add more composites. I think this will bring more attention to people and hopefully we can find it every year that is missing!”
Her unit leader is Tonya Brace.
Emily‘s Eagle Court of Honor is scheduled for this month.
