A different kind of "Rock Star"
When you think of today’s musicians, the term “Eagle Scout” doesn’t immediately come to mind. You can make an exception for Peter Fogg, a guitar player whose interests include both making music and making a difference.
Becoming an Eagle Scout is something you earn. In Peter’s case, working toward that goal included doing a community project to gain a needed merit badge.
He chose to put both his leadership skills and love of music together in service of a local charity and another humanitarian cause, Water for South Sudan. In Peter’s view, today’s interdependent world means his project needed to address both hometown and world community needs for change.
Rallying fellow musicians and band mates, Peter organized every aspect of a fund-raising concert that collected food for Foodlink and raised almost $1300 for Water for South Sudan. In addition to using his musical talent, Peter designed the poster and used Facebook and his social network to insure the event came off as first-class.
This Eagle Scout's vision, energy, and talented leadership will no doubt continue to soar in service to others.
