Kohlton Corchado of Boy Scout Troop 834 in Pittsburgh, Pa., was inducted into Eagle Scout rank by his board of review on Sept. 8, 2020, at Scott Township Park in Pittsburgh.
Corchado’s Scout Leader, Matt Krauter, guided him through the process to achieve this award.
He began his Boy Scout career at 9 years old in fourth grade at Chartiers Valley School in September 2012.
Corchado earned his Eagle Scout award by completing a major paint project at the Unity Presley Church located in Pittsburgh. The project included painting the entire basement area, hallways and the food pantry. He also installed hand rails and wheelchair guard rails.
The project took place during July 2019. Corchado led the project from start to finish.
His fellow Troop 834 leaders, Scouts, friends and family members participated in this project and his effort was commended.
Kohlton demonstrated a positive Scout spirit by following their oath and law, earning 30 merit badges during his years of scouting.
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement in the Boy Scout program.
Sandy Corchado, his mother, fully supported his scouting and over the years became a trained Boy Scout leader. His parents, Jeff and Sandy, are former North East residents.
Corchado is the grandson of Eugenio (Peach) and Judy Corchado of North East and Paul and Bernie of Findley Lake, N.Y.
Corchado will graduate from Chartiers High School in June 2021 and has been accepted at Pennsylvania College of Technology in Hillansport, Pa.
