Heiney attains Eagle status

Everett Alexander (Alex) Heiney of Laguna Beach will be presented the

Eagle Scout award in a court of honor March 4 at Unitarian

Universalist Fellowship of Laguna Beach, 429 Cypress St.

Heiney, 14, was awarded the ranking, the highest in the Boy

Scouts, in January by the Pacifica District of the Orange County

Council of Boy Scouts of America.

To earn the rank, Heiney organized members of his troop and church

to assist in completing a new Religious Education Center at the

Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. The project included building

bookcases for the center, prepping and painting the center after

construction was completed and conducting a book, toy and game drive

for the youth who will use the center. From the proceeds, he was also

able to donate several hundred dollars to the Fellowship building

fund.

Heiney is senior patrol leader of Troop 911, and has also served

as patrol leader and troop quartermaster. He has been inducted into

the Boy Scouts honorary organization, Order of the Arrow.

He also served as the youngest sailor aboard the privateer Lynx on

an annual sail from Newport Beach to Hawaii in June and July, and won

a silver medal at the Junior Olympics National Trampoline Competition

in Tampa, Florida, in July.

Heiney, son of Mr. and Mrs. Terry Heiney of Laguna Beach, attends

Sage Hill High School in Newport Coast, where he is an honor roll

freshman, a member of the school's junior varsity cross country,

soccer and track teams and also serves as pianist for the Sage Hill

Chamber Music Orchestra.
