“Leadership, hard work, and dedication to the community are what it means to be an Eagle Scout,” said Supervisor Romaine. “I commend Andrew for his achievement. He is a wonderful example for younger Scouts and his peers to look up to.”
Since the award was presented in 1912, no more than four percent of all Scouts have attained the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.
