Sebastian and Robert Myers achieve the designation of Eagle Scout
The Rehoboth Board of Selectmen extends congratulations to Sebastian and Robert Myers who achieved the designation of Eagle Scout. The brothers are residents of Rehoboth and belong to Troop 24, Attleboro, MA
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement in the Scouts BSA program of the Boy Scouts of America. Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned this rank. In addition to earning a minimum of 21 merit badges, the Eagle Scout must demonstrate Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. The Eagle Scout designation is only conferred after a lengthy review process of all required elements of the award.
The Eagle Scout Court of Honor was convened on February 9 in the community room at St. Theresa Church in Attleboro. Senator Paul Feeney, Representative Steve Howitt, and Selectmen Gerry Schwall and Jim Muri attended the ceremony. Proclamations were presented to Sebastian and Robert on behalf of the State Senate, House of Representatives, and the Town of Rehoboth.
