Farmingville, NY - On June 16, Councilwoman Jane Bonner attended the Court of Honor ceremony for Boy Scout Troop 161 of Shoreham. To become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America, a scout must earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, demonstrate leadership, and perform an approved community service project. The Eagle Scout award was first presented in 1912, and no more than four percent of all Scouts have attained the rank. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “Congratulations to all the scouts for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. They are all outstanding young men who set a good example for their peers to follow. Scouts are the leaders of tomorrow, and from what I can tell by meeting these young men, our future will be in good hands.”
