Northport Celebrates Three New Eagle Scouts!

Eagle Scouts 11.30.19

Suffolk County Legislator William Spencer was proud to recognize three exceptional young men, Aidan Sebesta, Nicholas Lembo, and Lucas Cusati, as they celebrated their Eagle Court of Honor this past Saturday at the East Northport Fire House.

The three scouts who are all members of Northport Boy Scout Troop 41 and graduates of Northport High School completed the following service projects:

Aidan’s service project involved building two large wooden cabinets for the Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown, which are being used store supplies for rehabilitating sick and injured animals and as platforms for cages. To fund the project, Aidan conducted a carwash to raise money to buy supplies and negotiated prices and donations with local vendors. As a result of his excellent budgeting skills, Aidan was able to donate more than $100 in surplus funds from the car wash to the Nature Center.

Aidan is currently a junior in the Honors Program at Fordham University majoring in History.

For Nicholas’ Eagle Scout Project, he fixed the barn roof and overhang at the Lewis Oliver Farm in Northport, a place that holds special significance in his heart as he spent much time there as a child visiting the farm and feeding the animals.  When Nicholas discovered that the barn was in disrepair, he immediately knew that it would be the focus of his service project. The reconstruction took many hours of planning, fundraising and construction. In addition to stabilizing the structure of the barn, Nicholas added gutters, created a space for chickens to scratch, and painted the beams.

Nicholas is currently attending Lehigh University where he is majoring in Computer Engineering.

Lucas sourced his love of music into a service project to entertain the local veterans residing at the Northport VA Hospital.  Over a period of a year, he organized and led a group known as “SQUADRON 154”, made up of more than 75 Northport High School chorus, orchestra, and band students, to provide a series of 12 concerts to entertain veterans with the gift of music.

Lucas is a Rose Scholar at Cornell University studying Computer Science.

“The life skills, leadership qualities, perseverance, and character developed by these gentlemen as they worked their way up to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout will stay with them for the rest of their lives. We thank them for their commitment to bettering our community, and wish each of them continued success in all future endeavors,” stated Legislator Spencer.
