     Senator Martins attended the Court of Honor held for the three scouts to personally congratulate them and present them with copies of the legislative resolutions.

     “After many years of hard work and community service, Gerard, Andrew, and Craig attained something that very few ever achieve; the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout. I’m certain that this is just the first of many great things these three young men will achieve. I congratulate them on earning this honor and wish them the very best for continued success,” said Senator Martins.
