The weeds and wild grass are gone and in their place is a beautifully landscaped courtyard at Jamie McGee Elementary School, courtesy of Bolingbrook High School freshman Trevor Mohrmann.

“It makes me feel great to be able to give back to the school that gave me an education,” the McGee alum said Tuesday at ribbon cutting ceremonies for the courtyard. “I hope it makes kids here enjoy their education more.”

“This is an exceptional young man. I’m impressed with the way he handles himself at 14 years old,” said Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, who attended the ribbon cutting along with Bolingbrook Trustee Maria Zarate. “This project is something that’s here for an eternity.”

Mohrmann, who decided to undertake the landscape project to help him qualify for Eagle Scout, has been planning things since April. The BHS honor student led the drive for donations, secured materials and rounded up all the help he needed from fellow Scouts and his family.

“They all came out and put in a lot of hard work,” he said.

“It’s always nice to see a student come back to visit us, especially when they are as grateful and helpful as Trevor,” said McGee Assistant Principal Leanne Lyons. “He was a wonderful student while he was here. He was always thoughtful and kind. And it’s obvious he still is.”
