He completed his Eagle Board of Review and earned the rank of Eagle Scout on August 24, 2016. His scouting accomplishments will be celebrated this Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016 at 1 p.m. at Highline United Methodist Church (13016 1st Ave South). Yasinâ€™s eagle project was completed through the City of Burien Parks and Recreation Department. A senior at Raisbeck Aviation High School, heÂ was originally tasked with building one bridge structure for a dog agility course that was being planned at Lakeview Park in Burien. He then took on the additional challenge of building two additional A-Frame structures along with the bridge structure for the dog agility course at the park. The project consisted of three phases:
- The first phase was the design of the three structures. Yasin spent countless hours drawing up designs and going out to other dog parks to take measurements for his own structures.
- Phase two was gathering materials and completing the pre-installation build for the three structures. Yasin, along with his scoutmaster Mike Poelzer, went to Dunn Lumber and received price quotes based on the designs Yasin drew up. Yasin gathered members of his troop at his scoutmasterâ€™s house for the pre-installation build portion of the project.
- Phase three was the installation of the three structures at Lakeview Park. He went to Lakeview Park with several adults and youth from his troop on June 24 and June 25 to complete installation of the structures, which required large holes to be dug out and cement to hold structures in place.
