YORKTOWN TEEN ACHIEVES HIGHEST RANKING IN SCOUTING
Brewster, N.Y. – 5/13/2013 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) presented Jacob Wassey of Yorktown Troop 267 with a New York State Senate Proclamations for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Eagle Scout is the highest possible rank in the Boy Scouts of America. The Eagle Scout is an honor that is held for life and is said, “once an Eagle, always an Eagle.”
“There are a very small percentage of scouts that ever make it to the Eagle Scout ranking and I would like to congratulate Jacob for all his hard work to achieve this prestigious ranking,” said Senator Greg Ball. “It was a great honor for me to meet Jacob and learn about his project of trail repair and for the community in Peekskill. I look forward to great things from Jacob in the future.”
For Jacob’s Eagle Scout Project he did trail repair and raised walkways, prior conditions have made the trail inadequate to walk. Large rocks, roots, heavy rain and flooding made it impossible to pass. After he completed his project children are now able to use the trail for a safe passage to and from school and also to enjoy the outdoors.
