Stanley, 18, now lives in Dubuque, Iowa. He was named an Eagle Scout earlier this year, but his ceremony was Sept. 26.
For his Eagle Scout project, Stanley worked with Opening Doors, a local women and children’s shelter in Dubuque, to build furniture — including a table, podiums and storage shelving that provides extended room in the children’s area. The added space will now allow room for local clergy and volunteers to work with a growing number of children in this room.
Stanley lived in Grand Haven for 10 years. He attended Peach Plains Elementary School, Lakeshore Middle School and Grand Haven High School. He is currently a senior at Hempstead High School in Dubuque, where he lives with his parents and three sisters.
