Troop 41 awards four Eagle Scouts
Scout Troop 41 of Bay Village held a ceremony on Oct. 28 at Bay Middle School to honor four Scouts who recently earned the Eagle Scout rank. The four recipients were Dylan Gubanyar, Matthew Hengelsberg, Max Schell and Sam Warren.
The Eagle Scout rank is the highest achieved rank in Scouting. In order to reach this rank, each Scout earned a minimum of 21 merit badges, demonstrated leadership and service within the troop, and designed and implemented a local service project, also known as their Eagle Project.
For his project, Dylan refurbished the storage and recreation areas for the youth at Lakewood Presbyterian Church. Matthew renovated the garden spaces and refurbished a bench for Bethesda on the Bay Lutheran Church. Max designed and built an oversized bench and table using recycled materials for the White Star Quarry diving area. And Sam collected donations and sent care packages to service members through Operation Buckeye.
Several distinguished guests were present at the ceremony, including VFW Post 9693 Commander Fred Green, American Legion Post 385 Commander Stanley Zeager and Past Commander James Potter, State Senator Matt Dolan, State Representative David Greenspan, Cuyahoga County Councilmember Nan Baker, and Bay Village Mayor Paul Koomar. They each presented a commendation to recognize the achievement of the Scouts.
Only 4 percent of scouts finish all of the requirements to become an Eagle. Congratulations to each new Eagle and his family for this fantastic achievement.
