NO. R-12.  House concurrent resolution honoring Brian R. Kent of Sharon on becoming an Eagle Scout.


Offered by:  Representative Adams of Hartland and Senator Campbell of Windsor County, Senator Dunne of Windsor County and Senator Welch of Windsor County.

     Whereas, scouting is a movement that challenges, inspires, and guides young men toward high achievements and high values as expressed in the Scout oath, law, motto, and slogan, and

     Whereas, the rank of Eagle is the highest rank in Boy Scouting, and

     Whereas, attainment of Eagle rank requires mastery of difficult challenges in diverse areas, and

     Whereas, attainment of Eagle rank also requires demonstration of good character and community service, and

     Whereas, attainment of Eagle rank not only indicates difficult achievement itself, but also demonstrates the courage and tenacity to pursue a goal over a long period of time, and

     Whereas, attainment of Eagle rank confers upon the Eagle Scout an honor that will dignify him for the rest of his life, and

     Whereas, only a minority of scouts ever attains this rank, and

     Whereas, Brian Kent, who is a member of Troop # 205 in Sharon, has attained the rank of Eagle Scout, and

     Whereas, Brian was presented his Eagle Scout award at an Eagle recognition ceremony held in Sharon this past November, and

     Whereas, Brian, a student at Hartford High School, completed a special service project promoting the flying of the American flag in Sharon, now therefore be it

     Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

     That the General Assembly congratulates Brian R. Kent for his special achievement of attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, and be it further

Resolved:  That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Brian Kent in Sharon.
