Legislator Anker Honors Coram Boy Scout Troop 560’s Newest Eagle Scouts

The community gathers to honored Eagle Scouts Nicholas Tlockowski and James Anthony Cruz

CORAM, NY – On Thursday, November 16, 2017, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined Boy Scout Troop 560 at the Coram Fire Department for an Eagle Scout Ceremony honoring the troop’s newest Eagle Scouts, Nicholas Tlockowski and James Anthony Cruz. Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is an extremely prestigious honor that is only achieved by approximately 5% of all Boy Scouts. It is the highest rank that a scout can receive and requires the scouts to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project, and undergo a lengthy review process.


“Congratulations to James and Nicolas on achieving the rank of Eagle scout,” stated Legislator Anker. "Scouting instills in young men like James and Nicolas the importance of community service. They both worked hard and dedicated their time to making their community a better place, and they are more than deserving of this distinguished honor."


As part of the Eagle Scout process, James and Nicholas had to complete a community service project. Both scouts chose to have their community projects benefit the Sunshine Alternative Education Center which is located in Port Jefferson Station. The Sunshine Alternative Education Center provides substance abuse and violence prevention programs to students and families in the local community. As his project, Nicholas constructed cinder block planters for the center. The planters were filled with flowers and bushes to beautify the campus for students and employees. James’ project included constructing outdoor benches out of cinder blocks that can be utilized by the center’s students.
