East High student earns rank of Eagle Scout

Taylor Groskopf of Wauwatosa recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout.

Taylor, 18, is a senior at Wauwatosa East High School. He is the son of Karen and Bill Groskopf.

For his Eagle Scout project, Taylor planned, organized and led a group of high school musicians in performing a jazz concert at the Lutheran Home, 7500 W. North Ave. He recruited the performers as well as additional helpers to move residents from their rooms to the activity room and to set up and take down equipment.

About 65 residents and staff members attended the concert.

In addition to being a member of Boy Scout Troop 21, Taylor is on the Wauwatosa East High School varsity swim team, in the marching band and the wind ensemble.
