LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION congratulating Tyler Benjamin Searles upon the
occasion of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most
prestigious of Scouting honors, on November 10, 2013

WHEREAS, Tyler Benjamin Searles, through his diligence and rigorous
efforts, has achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank,
Eagle Scout; the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony will be held on Sunday,
November 10, 2013, at Congregational Christian Church, in Ravena, New
York; and
WHEREAS, Tyler Benjamin Searles, son of Brian and Alicia Searles, is a
member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 1067; and
WHEREAS, The younger brother of Emilie Rose Searles, Tyler Benjamin
Searles is a 2013 graduate of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School
District; he has enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and will
begin basic training mid-November at Parris Island, South Carolina; and
WHEREAS, America has achieved her greatest heights of glory through
the dedication, determination and tireless efforts of the outstanding
citizens of this Nation; and
WHEREAS, It is only with the continued diligence and devotion of our
youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and
WHEREAS, The Boy Scouts of America and its members are dedicated to
the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;
WHEREAS, The highest achievement of leadership in Scouting, earned by
only five percent of all Boy Scouts, is the distinguished rank of Eagle
Scout; and
WHEREAS, This outstanding young man has been involved in Scouting for
many years, has lived up to Scouting's ideals and has attained all of
the necessary achievements, including completion of a community service
project, which was successfully planned, developed and executed; and
WHEREAS, For his project, Tyler Benjamin Searles planned, oversaw and
completed the cleaning of the basement of the Unitas Memorial VFW Post
9594, Ravena, New York; this space was full of medical equipment that
was used for the Post's Medical Equipment Loan Program; through word of
mouth, the Knights of Columbus Mother McAuley Council 3424, Ravena, New
York, volunteered to continue the program; the usable equipment was
transferred to the Knights of Columbus and the rest was disassembled;
the metals were recycled and the money from the recycling was used to
offset the cost of a dumpster to remove the remaining trash; with this
space empty and cleaned, the VFW now has more usable space; and
WHEREAS, Tyler Benjamin Searles' perseverance in rising through the
ranks to Eagle Scout is a strong indication of his ability to master
difficult tasks; his accomplishment will enable him to emerge as a lead-
er, fully equipped to meet the challenges of today's complex society;
WHEREAS, This new Eagle Scout is a credit to his family, his school,
his community, his State and his Nation, and no doubt his future will be
filled with accomplishments of equal importance; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations, in
recognition of the significance of this meritorious achievement, to
congratulate and honor Tyler Benjamin Searles on achieving the rank of
Eagle Scout; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Tyler Benjamin Searles.
