3 Ridgewood Scouts Earn the Eagle Badge of Honor

Monday, September 25, Mr. Peter Seremetis, the Boy Scout Committee Chairman, presented three young men from Ridgewood, NJ with the prestigious Eagle Badge: Erick Perez, Nathan Lung and Connor Perlman. The Eagle Scout Rank is the highest rank attainable. The title of “Eagle Scout” is held for life: “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle”.

Scouts must earn a total of 21 merit badges and demonstrate that they live by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in their daily life before being awarded the Eagle Badge. Only a small percent of scouts–about 5 percent–of all earn this badge.

Here are the projects that earned these scouts this great honor:

Connor Perlman
Connor led a project to install numbered address stickers on the rear entrances of about 200 businesses in downtown Ridgewood to enable emergency services to quickly identify these entrances in an emergency.

Nathan Lung
Nathan led a project to build a new shed in a new location for the Hermitage so the contents of the old shed could be transferred and the old shed torn down to enable their garden expansion.

Erick Perez
Erick led a project to design and build six benches to be used around the track at Benjamin Franklin Middle school.
