A local teen with low-vision is using his involvement in Scouts to help support Clovernook Center.
Noah Krabach, 17, has been a Scout since first grade. After moving through the ranks of Cub Scout and Boy Scout, he is now aiming for Eagle Scout, an accomplishment only 4% of Scouts achieve. One of the requirements is to plan, develop and lead a service project to benefit the community. For Krabach, Clovernook Center is the perfect beneficiary. He’s been involved with the organization for nearly four years, participating in various activities through the Adaptive Sports and Leisure program including tennis, goalball, skiing, rock climbing and Summer Camp.
“They’ve done so much for me with sports and finding equipment to help with my low vision,” said Krabach. “I just want to give something back.”
Krabach plans to build six picnic tables to be placed outside the Procter Center at Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually impaired. He’s currently in the early stages and plans to draw up blueprints. He’ll then begin recruiting people to help with construction and secure funding to purchase the materials.
“My goal is to have the tables done in March before Spring Fling,” said Krabach. The event features arts, crafts and other activities. Although the tables will be placed outside Procter Center, they will be portable and can be moved around the campus.
Thinking about the future, Krabach said he’d like to study music composition for film and gaming, and he’s recently gotten back into graphic design for game development.
