PERRY — Morgan Carr, a 14-year-old Boy Scout representing Troop 550 in Warner Robins, has made the construction of wheelchair-accessible desks the focus of his Eagle Scout service project.

The service project is a major requirement for young men wishing to reach the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America. It calls for a service project that demonstrates leadership and benefits the community.

Earlier this month, Christy Jones, who teaches orthopedic impaired students at Houston County schools, delivered three custom-built desks to Perry High that were specifically designed for students who have cerebral palsy. A fourth desk was delivered to Bonaire Middle School for a student with muscular dystrophy.
