WHEREAS, This extraordinary young man made persistent and steady
progress through the ranks to achieve this prestigious award and has
demonstrated his determination to prepare himself for a meaningful,
productive role in society; and

WHEREAS, Tristan S. Remkus is a member of Boy Scouts of America

a Cub Scout in first grade; it is only with the continued diligence and
devotion of our youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain
her glory; and

WHEREAS, Tristan S. Remkus has always gone out of his way to include
others and make them feel welcome; he is the leader that new Scouts
emulate and seek when needing assistance; and

WHEREAS, His troop appreciates and admires his willingness to be the
first to try something new; he is the first to scale the rock wall, ski
the slope, or get in front of an audience; and

WHEREAS, Currently, Tristan S. Remkus is in high school; upon
graduation he will be attending Clarkson University in Potsdam, New
York, to pursue a degree in Environmental Engineering; 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

placed at the beginning of the trail; and

leader, fully equipped to meet the challenges of today's complex
society; and
