Trinity senior and Eagle Scout Austin Hirtzel

Trinity Senior and Aquinas House member Austin Hirtzel achieved Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. Austin is in Troop No. 167 at Crestwood United Methodist Church.

Austin is the first legacy Eagle Scout in the Troop – his father, Carey ’85, a founding member of Troop No. 167, was in the first group of Eagle Scouts in the Troop in 1983.

For his Eagle project Austin upgraded the fire hydrants for the Pewee Valley Fire Department.

He raised $1,700 in funds to purchase fire hydrant reflectors and organized a team of volunteers to install the reflectors on the 230 fire hydrants in the PVFD district.

The reflectors provide better visibility and flow rate information to firefighters. Congratulations, Austin!
