On Wednesday, June 11, Michael Rizzo was acknowledged as having completed all the requirements of the Eagle Rank at a Court of Honor conducted in the First Presbyterian Church of Finleyville.


Pat, UT Supervisor Steve Parish, Michael and Garry

Present at the ceremony were members and leaders of Troop 1452, sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church of Finleyville, members of Michael's family, and many friends. Also present were Union Township Supervisor Steve Parish and a staff member of US Representative Tim Murphy, who each presented certificates of recognition of Michael's scouting achievements.

As part of the Court of Honor ceremony, the leaders of Troop 1452 attested to Michael's completion of all the requirements and ranks to make him eligible for the Eagle Scout Award, including earning 32 merit badges that qualified him for the Star and Life ranks. They also attested that he had successfully passed an Eagle Board of Review conducted this past September.

Every aspiring Eagle Scout must complete a significant community service project. As his project, Michael chose to completely renovate an attic space in the Finleyville Volunteer Fire Dept. building to make it useable for storage of fire–fighting equipment.

The Eagle Badge was presented to Mrs. Rizzo by Scoutmaster Andrew Sneed. Mrs. Rizzo, in turn, pinned the badge to Michael's shirt. After receiving his badge, Michael presented his mother, Pat, and father, Garry, with mementos of the ceremony, after which all present offered their congratulations.

Michael resides with his family in Union Township and is now attending Point Park University majoring in civil engineering. He is also a member of the Finleyville Volunteer Fire Dept.
