(Smithtown, NY)… Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta attended the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for his constituent, Anthony Guadagna, Jr. of Boy Scout Troop 8. Anthony earned 45 Merit Badges ranging from American Heritage to Welding. He also served as Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader and Quartermaster.
For his community service project, Anthony created a prayer garden and brick patio for St. Anthony of Padua Church in East Northport. He dedicated this project to Sister Eileen Christie, a family friend and a teacher at St. Anthony’s High School, who went missing while on vacation in Austria and has not been heard from since.
“Becoming an Eagle Scout is a testament to your character and leadership skills and is something that you have accomplished while still a teenager. This recognition will stay with you for the rest of your life and can never be taken from you,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta. “What you have done is very impressive and we will expect great things from you in the future,” added Legislator Trotta.
