HOUSTON – Isha Pokerna is a busy senior at Kingwood High School. She balances schoolwork, orchestra and golf, and also just so happens to be in the Inaugural Class of Female Eagle Scouts.

She joined Boy Scouts at the age of 16, after tagging along with her brother during his Cub Scout meetings and campouts.

“My Eagle project was to build a sand volleyball court for my charter organization. They’re the place that’s been hosting our troop meetings and all, and so I felt like it was sensible to give back to them.”

Pokerna is a great example for young girls everywhere.

“Any kind of dream that you have, you can always do it. Not just you, there’s other people who are always going to root for you, and make sure you get to your end goal.”

According to Boys Scouts of America, “the Sam Houston Area Council serves approximately 25,000 youth in 16 counties in Southeast Texas.”
