Former Tampa resident receives religious emblem

Nicholas Kleiber, former Tampa resident, was awarded the Ad Altare Dei religious emblem by Father Kerry Nine?mire of St. Mary?s Catholic Church.

The purpose of the Ad Altare Dei program, according to information about the emblem, is to help Catholic Boy Scouts of the Roman Rite develop a fully Christian way of life in the faith community.

Kleiber began his scouting career with Pack 106, sponsored by the Tampa Lions Club. He was transferred to Troop 102, sponsored by Marion Methodist Church, and then Troop 214 in 2006, sponsored by Trinity Methodist Church in Salina.

He was awarded the honor of Eagle Scout and Court of Honor last spring. His Eagle project consisted of planning, organizing and supervising the renovation of an apartment at Ashby House in Salina. He and other volunteers cleaned, prepared, painted and installed window blinds in the apartment.

A senior at Centre High School, Kleiber?s future plans are to join the military.

Lynn and Peggy Kleiber of Salina are his parents. Grand?parents are Leona Kleiber and the late John Kleiber of Tampa and the late Otis and Pauline Havice of Herington.
