Jonathan Della Manna, a member of Troop 69 at Mountain Chapel United Methodist Church in Vestavia Hills, has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
Della Manna is the son of Angelo and Debbie Della Manna of Hoover. He joined Troop 69 in 2011 after earning his Arrow of Light award in Cub Scout Pack 69. He has earned 27 merit badges and has held various leadership positions with Troop 69 including senior patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, quartermaster and historian.
This Scouting journey he has enjoyed numerous campouts, participated in several community service projects and attended the BSA Sea Base and Summit Bechtel high-adventure bases.
For his Eagle Scout project, Della Manna, along with his fellow troop members, built a 5-lane archery range for the Hoover Recreation Center, complete with firing line, target stands and archery targets. With a new archery range, the Hoover Recreation Center can now accommodate the growing interest in their archery classes, and have begun including it in their therapeutic program as well.
Della Manna is a junior at Spain Park High School, and will be honored for his accomplishment during the Eagle Court of Honor in October.
