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, Boy Scouts of America and its members are dedicated to the

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;

WHEREAS, Tupper Lake now has a semi-pro baseball team, and for his
project, Jayce Clement chose to construct and execute changes in the

buried for many years were unearthed and re-roofed by local baseball
enthusiasts; and Jayce and his volunteer crew painted the dugouts to
ready them for the teams; and

WHEREAS, His dedication to the safety and well-being of the citizens
of the Village of Tupper Lake, New York, are represented through his
project and demonstrates his devotion to both community and commitment
to others; and

soon complete his first year of North Country Community College in
Saranac Lake, New York, while continuing the ideals and principles of
the Boy Scouts; and

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

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 Jayce Clement on achieving the rank of Eagle
Scout; and be it further
