• Marc-Olivier Arcand is the son of Dominique and Michel Arcand of Chepachet. His Eagle service project was to organize and conduct an eyeglass drive to benefit NEVOSH, a local charitable organization dedicated to providing eye care to the needy. He collected and donated more than 800 pairs of glasses for their mission in Panama. He will graduate from Bishop Hendricken High School next month and will attend college in the fall to study biology.
