Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) and Assemblyman Dave McDonough (R-North Merrick) recently congratulated Merrick resident Matthew Callman on becoming an Eagle Scout.
Matthew, a member of Troop 214 and a senior at Calhoun High School, earned his Eagle Scout badge after completing an Eagle Scout project which focused on emergency preparedness and fire prevention. He collected, organized, and distributed information at a booth during the two-day Merrick Street Fair. In addition, he prepared an instructional CD on fire prevention and used it to teach cub scouts about fire safety. The CD was made available to Cub Scout troops throughout Nassau County.
Senator Fuschillo and Assemblyman McDonough also presented Matthew with a copy of a legislative resolution that was passed in honor of his accomplishment. With passage of the resolution, Matthew’s achievements will forever be part of the official record of the New York State Legislature.
“Matthew is a wonderful young man who really cares about helping others. I am certain that this is just the first of many more great accomplishments that lie ahead for Matthew. We congratulate him and his family on this notable achievement and wish him continued success in the future,” said Senator Fuschillo.
