Conner Flynn earned the rank of Eagle Scout from Troop 3 Newport. He was presented with a certificate of appreciation by John Hirschboeck of the Cliff Walk Commission for his Eagle project on the Cliff Walk. Conner Flynn, a senior at Middletown High School, was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout at a Court of Honor ceremony held last month. Flynn is a member of Troop 3 Newport, sponsored by the Elks Lodge #104. His Eagle Leadership Service Project involved organizing volunteers to assist with his Cliff Walk Points of Interest Project. The project constructed and installed 16 wooden posts mounted with QR codes to detail various historical points of interest along the Cliff Walk’s 3.5 mile shoreline. The QR codes enable visitors on the walk to scan the codes with their smart phone to link to “Visit Newport Rhode Island,” where the historical details of their present location are described.
