MILLER PLACE, NY – On Saturday, March 16th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony at Miller Place High School to honor Troop 204’s newest Eagle Scouts, Ryan Salvia, Daniel Thompson, Kevin Thompson, and Jonah Yonks. Legislator Anker was joined by Scoutmaster Joseph Argento, Assistant Scoutmaster Thomas Barry, and other elected officials.
“The work of our scouts enhance the quality of life for residents across our community. Through their hard work, dedication, and commitment to scouting, Ryan, Daniel, Kevin, and Jonah have proven themselves to be extraordinary leaders. Their Eagle Scout accomplishments will set great examples for the younger scouts in Troop 204. I congratulate them and wish them continued success in their future endeavors,” said Legislator Anker.
Ryan’s project consisted of adding bicycle racks to the property of the Center for Environmental Education and Discovery (CEED) in Bellport. Daniel and Kevin also completed their projects at CEED, by adding trailhead kiosks and planters at the hiking staging area, respectively. For his project, Jonah installed kayak racks at Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai.
Eagle Scout is the highest rank that a scout can receive, and requires the scout to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project, and undergo a lengthy review process. For more information about the Boy Scouts of America and the rank of Eagle Scout, please visit www.scouting.org.
