Receiving the Eagle Scout designation
Three La Crescenta Boy Scouts have received the rank of Eagle Scout.
Joseph Dominic Natalizio began his Scouting career as a Wolf Scout in Den 3 Pack 302 at Monte Vista Elementary School and continued through Webelos, ultimately receiving his Arrow of Light Award and bridging to Troop 303 in 2003.
With Troop 303 he attended summer camps at Makualla, Mataguay, Fiesta Island and Cherry Valley. He also attended the 2005 National Scout Jamboree with the Western Los Angeles County Council Troop 931, where he met and traded patches with Scouts from the West San Fernando Valley and across the United States.
Backpacking, camping and climbing were his main activities as a member of Troop 303. Highlights of his Scouting career include the trek across Catalina Island in 2007 and the climbs of Half Dome, Mt. San Jacinto, Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. Baldy. He was also crew leader of Crew 810 P1 on the Philmont Scout Ranch Trek in 2007, which meant he had to wake up before everyone else.
