New Woodshop Volunteers and A Three-Year Service Award

Posted in Michael's Woodshop

We are pleased to introduce the newest volunteers in Michael’s Woodshop. Alyssa and Teaghan have completed their training and have joined the team as Youth Assistants. In addition, we would like to recognize Dallas Cecil, a dedicated volunteer who has given three years of service in the woodshop. Michael’s Woodshop is run entirely through the time, effort and talent of volunteers and we welcome these latest additions and appreciate the ongoing commitment of our volunteers

Meet Our New Youth Assistants

L to R: Teaghan and Alyssa

Alyssa is a First Class scout with Troop 893G in Centreville, VA. She enjoys camping, uses Merit Badges to explore new interests, and looks forward to high adventure trips! Her dad has been woodworking for many years, and has roped her into many a project, so it just ‘made sense’ for her to join the team in Michael’s Woodshop. In her non-scouting time she rides horses and is a member of Centreville Dance Theater.

Teaghan is a Life Scout in Troop 1137G in Centreville, VA. Her Scouting passions include shooting sports, camping, and nature. Teaghan has an artistic spirit and enjoys exploring her talents through drawing and crochet. Her newfound interest in woodworking sparked while completing her Woodwork Merit Badge requirements at Camp Snyder in July.

Volunteer Service Award

We are pleased to recognize Dallas Cecil for three years of volunteer service in Michael’s Woodshop. Dallas serves as our CNC Lead and provides training and support for all CNC projects. He is an Eagle Scout and has served for over 12 years as an adult Scout leader serving as the outdoor chair for Pack 1148, Assistant Scoutmaster for Troops 1430B and 1148G and a Committee Member for Crew 1430. Dallas has received the District Award of Merit, the Venturing Leadership Award, and the International Scouter’s Award, with just completing an epic two-week Denmark adventure with Crew 1430.

We are always looking for additional volunteers in Michael’s Woodshop. Roles are available for adults and youth, from novices to experience woodworkers. If you are interested in volunteering, please see “Join the Michael’s Woodshop Team”, or email us at
