YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. - Raymond Schmidt is the newest Eagle Scout from Scouts BSA Troop 164.

He earned the rank after completing his Eagle Scout Service Project of building three custom-built training ramps for puppies at Guiding Eyes for the Blind, which is headquartered in Yorktown Heights.

Its sister organization in Australia heard about the ramps and asked for Schmidt’s plans, which they used to build their own set of ramps for their puppies.
