Senator Jack M. Martins recently attended an Eagle Court of Honor to congratulate Neil Daniel Duggan of Boy Scout Troop 298 of New Hyde Park for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank a scout can achieve. Senator Martins presented Neil Daniel Duggan with the resolution that was passed on the floor of the Senate on April 19.,

The resolution read, “Whereas, Neil Duggan'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.”

For his Eagle Scout project, Neil restored the foundation, handrails, exterior window frames and doors of the New Hyde Park Village Hall with the assistance of fellow scouts and adult leaders.
