SANDSTONE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Sandstone Township teenager who is suffering loss of vision did not let that keep him from completing a waterfront cleanup project that will help him earn Boy Scout's highest rank.
The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports ( http://bit.ly/14O4FoT ) that Caleb Clack is not one to quit and he does not make excuses. He instead keeps positive.
The 16-year-old recently completed the project on Center Lake that will help him get the Eagle Scout rank. It's something only a small percentage of boys achieve.
In Clack's case, it comes more than three years after he was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition that results in a slow loss of vision. It has no cure and Clack could become legally blind.
