Jonathan Herman is a 16-year-old sophomore who enjoys gaming, airsoft competitions and football. After high school, he intends to enlist in the United States Army. He joined scouting in 2004, and Troop 165 in 2009. For Jon, scouting has provided an atmosphere in which he can develop his leadership and public-speaking skills.
For his Eagle Scout project, he put the finishing touches on the Fredericksburg Heritage Trail by weatherizing the posts supporting the trail’s safety rails. Jon enjoys cycling for both its physical benefits and the memories made with companions. He is participating in ESCAA 2014 to encourage everyone, especially young people, to get up, get out and get involved in pursuits that will help them become physically fit.
