Farmingville, NY – On June 15, Councilwoman Jane Bonner attended the Court of Honor ceremony for Trevor Satchell-Sabalja from Boy Scout Troop 390 in Mount Sinai. Trevor’s Eagle Scout project was to refurbish the pond in the courtyard of Mount Sinai Elementary. The project required the removal of shrubs, weeds, poison ivy, stones and rocks for cleaning, replacement of the lining, replanting the landscaping and the installation of a new water pump. More than thirty people including, scouts, friends and family helped complete the project over two days. The courtyard is the site of several events and classes during the year for the elementary school.
“Congratulations to Trevor for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Councilwoman Bonner. “He is an outstanding young man and who sets a good example for his peers to follow. Scouts are the leaders of tomorrow, and from what I can tell by knowing Trevor, our future will be in good hands.”
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.
