Dear Chi Lang Parents and Scouts, Congratulations to Abby Nguyen for being our troop's first girl to attain the rank of Eagle Scout!
Abby's Eagle Project involved her leading a team of volunteers from Kha Thanh to build beautiful wood trellis fence walls for the Tustin Boys and Girls Club, using materials she obtained through fundraising and donations from Home Depot and Lowe's.
Abby loves being a part of the scouting community. She has been a scout since she was 6 years old with Lien Doan Lac Viet in Houston, and she joined Lien Doan Chi Lang in 2018 at 14 years old. Despite joining us as an older youth, Abby quickly became good friends with her peers and grew to become one of our most prominent scouts. When BSA began to accept girls in 2018, Abby was among the first generation of girls to set their goal in achieving the Eagle Scout Rank. She also served as Vice President of Programs for Crew, participated in the 24th World Scout Jamboree in 2019, and has expressed her desire to continue scouting activities into adulthood.
Besides scouting, Abby volunteers with the Sunflower Organization which empowers students in Vietnam by building schools, awarding scholarships, and providing learning opportunities. She went to Vietnam to help build schools in remote poor villages. We are extremely proud of Abby for her achievements. We have no doubt she will succeed in whatever she chooses to do in the future. We wish her success in all her endeavors.
We congratulate Abby’s parents, Anh Binh and Chi Hoa, and her big sister Emily!
