William Wertheimer, of Vestavia Hills, was awarded the impressive rank of Eagle Scout on September 8th, 2016. As a member of Troop 76 at Liberty Crossings United Methodist Church, Will earned 23 merit badges, served in several leadership positions, and participated in many service projects. Even after his Eagle Scout, Will continues to be an active part of his troop.
For his Eagle Scout leadership project, Will built a message board and landscaped at The Red Barn, which provides incredible programs for amazing children and veterans. The project took 194 hours to complete and used a total of 32 workers. Will raised more funds than were needed for his project and was able to make a platinum donation of the excess to The Red Barn.
Will is a freshman at Vestavia Hills High School, where he participates in Habitat for Humanity and Latin Club. He is a member of Liberty Crossings United Methodist Church and participates in the high school youth group there.
He is the son of Carrie and Dan Wertheimer and has two siblings Drew and Grace.
