Alexander Cannata, '20 earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in scouting, in a Court of Honor ceremony on December 9. He is a member of Troop 52, which is chartered by Emmaus Church in Lakeway. Alex completed his Eagle project by giving back to St. Michael's and renovating the baseball concession stand prior to the 2018 season.
Family and close friends gathered to celebrate Alex's accomplishment, and several of his St. Michael's teachers, Mr. Council, Dr. Sheeter, and Mr. Moreland, attended the ceremony as well.
"It meant a lot to me knowing that I have these three teachers, and many more, who support me and will help me with anything I want to achieve. Had it not been for their support, I might not be in the position I am today, and for that I am extremely grateful," Alex said.
Alex is also an active member of the St. Michael's school community. He is a member of the music leadership team, captain of the drum line, member of the NHS, and Varsity baseball team player.
