Huntington Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci and Councilwoman Joan Cergol recognized four new Eagle Scouts at ceremonies across the Town on Saturday, January 6.
In a ceremony at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Northport, Supervisor Lupinacci and Councilwoman Cergol presented proclamations to Eagle Scouts John Taylor Fox and Richard Harrison Clinton from Troop 410. At Walt Whitman High School in Huntington Station, they presented a proclamation to Eagle Scout James Timothy Reilly of Troop 218. And at VFW Post 1469 in Huntington Station, they presented a proclamation to Eagle Scout Antonio J. Ferme of Troop 360.
“All of these young men, in attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, have demonstrated their abilities, their perseverance and, most of all, their commitment to improving our community,” Supervisor Lupinacci. “I congratulate them for this accomplishment and look forward to even greater contributions from them as they continue their education and set out on their careers.”
“It takes considerable determination to attain the rank of Eagle Scout, and having done so is a great reflection on their character and their potential. I hope as these fine young men continue preparing to be tomorrow’s leaders, they will build on this experience and achieve even greater heights,” Councilwoman Cergol said.
