Ben Franklin Academy rising senior Maxwell Greenbaum, the son of Sonja and Jeff Greenbaum, is the junior assistant scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 631, based at Woodward Academy in College Park. At the Court of Honor recently, he was awarded the William T. Hornaday Award patch for work in conservation in the field of invasive species. He is one of only 85 Scouts in the nation to receive the honor this year. He also was awarded both the Dr. Bernard Harris Supernova Bronze Medal and the Thomas Alva Edison Silver Supernova Medal for his work in STEM by completing many tasks and programs in technology, math, agriculture, end engineering and administering STEM programs to Cub Scouts. He is the first Scout in his troop to be presented with any of these, much less all three.
