James Giella is hoping to be an Eagle Scout, and he already has an eagle eye.
Dressed in his tan-and-green Boy Scout uniform, the 17-year-old member of Hicksville-based Troop 381 stands back to survey the work of the dozen or so volunteers he’s corralled on a recent Saturday to help revitalize a long, bland hallway in the lower level of the St. Bernard’s Church school building in Levittown.
The task at hand: a mural of religious-themed storefronts.
Various colors of paint have been laid out on a table for Giella’s 11-year-old sister, Jackie, “the paint mixer,” to work her magic, as one scout ventures onto a scaffold to reach the top of the 11-foot, 6-inch-tall mural.
