Clermont – Erin Foley, a girl in Scouts, BSA Troop 4998 and a resident of Clermont, has earned the honor of Eagle Scout, the highest rank that the Boy Scouts offers. Only 3 to 4 percent of Boy Scout members ever attain this prestigious honor.

Erin Foley, 18, of Four Corners Upper School, earned 24 merit badges and met all requirements to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. For her final project, she collected 75 donated computers from Four Corners Upper School, wiped their hard drives, reinstalled a working operating system, and donated them to a school in El Salvador.  The school, which she became aware of through her church’s mission work, was on the brink of closure, and was saved by the influx of computers for their students. 

 In addition to the school in El Salvador, computers were also donated to two different groups.  The first was an after-school program run by a local church and the other one was a project to supply personal computers to economically disadvantaged residents.

Outside of Scouts, Erin Foley is dual enrolled at Valencia State College and is on track to earning her Associates of Art degree along with her High School Diploma; the captain to her school’s varsity soccer team; and she is interning through her school with a CPA firm.
