Boy Scout Troop 1393 Recognizes Six New Scouts’ Achievements

Boy Scout Troop 1393 held an Eagle Court on Saturday, December 2, to recognize six new Eagle Scouts. This was a very unique and special event, since only approximately 4% of all Boy Scouts achieve this highest rank.

McMurray Eagles

The Crossroads Church of Christ in McMurray hosted the event, with a follow-up reception and luncheon in the Peters Township High School cafeteria. The Sons of The American Revolution provided the Color Guard for the opening and closing of the ceremony, as well as guest speaker, Mr. Ken Gorton. Mr. Gorton also gave a copy of the US Constitution and an award certificate to each of the new Eagle Scouts.

The Elks Representative, Gene Eckman, from the Pittsburgh South Hills Elks Lodge 2213, also gave a short talk and presented the following to each scout: framed award certificates, a personal US flag, and a gold Elks scouting lapel pin, which symbolizes the 80-year relationship between the two national groups.
