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, an Eagle Scout must demonstrate good character and community service, and
Whereas, completing the many prerequisites for becoming an Eagle Scout is a difficult achievement and demonstrates the courage and tenacity to pursue a goal over a long period of time, and
Whereas, an Eagle Scout has earned an honor that will dignify him for the rest of his life, and
Whereas, only a minority of scouts achieves Eagle status, and
Whereas, Gregory Foley of Rutland has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and
Whereas, Gregory was presented his Eagle Scout award at an Eagle Court of Honor ceremony held in Rutland on May 18, now therefore be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:
That the General Assembly congratulates Gregory Foley of Rutland for his special achievement of earning 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 Gregory Foley of Rutland
