WHEREAS, Kevin M. Kruse is a member of Boy Scouts of America Troop

remarkable young man is a member of the National Honor Society and was
instrumental in organizing two blood drives; and
WHEREAS, America has achieved her greatest heights of glory through

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

the Scouts and volunteers in cutting down two evergreen trees and some

congratulate and honor Kevin M. Kruse on achieving the rank of Eagle
Scout; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
