Troop 5 is excited to announce the newest scouts to achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout.

They are Austin Engros, Jonathan Sturr, Brad Davies and Elliott Bartsch.  This rank, achieved by only 5% of Boy Scouts, was attained by these scouts through rigorous work and years of satisfying rank and merit badge requirements.

To attain Eagle Scout Rank, each scout was also required to plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to the local community, religious institution, or school.  Finally, each scout had to successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review.

The new Eagle Scouts were honored in a “Eagle Court of Honor” ceremony held at the Reformed Church.  In addition to a formal ceremony, letters from Mayor Marvin, Governor Patterson and Senator Gillibrand were read, and the new Eagle scouts were presented with American flags that had been flown over the US Capital in their honor by Congresswoman Nita Lowey.

The Master of Ceremonies was Shane O’Neil, a Boy Scout of Troop 5 also working towards his Eagle Scout Rank.
