Mahwah Broke a Record

Eagle Scouts AwardMahwah, NJ broke a record and made us proud when 8 of its Scouts from Troop 258 were promoted to Eagle Scout. Eagle Scout is the highest advancement rank in Boy Scouting. In order to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, the scout must have progressed through six ranks of scouting, completed 21 merit badges, and serve six months in a troop leadership position. The Scout must also plan, develop, and give leadership to a service project for the community. The final requirement to achieve Eagle Scout is to successfully complete the Eagle Scout Board of Review.

The Eagle Scout rank is achieved by only 7% of all Scouts nationwide and it’s considered a prestigious and hard-earned achievement.

The eight who were promoted are Dante D’Agostaro, Matthew Curtiss, Matthew Delcher, Thomas Galow, Justin Genardi, Michael Imperiosi, Michael Nelson and Martin Zakrzewski.

Their projects are impressive, no small endeavors:
Dante D’Agostaro built a bird sanctuary.
Thomas Galow restored a trail and built a bridge in Haledon reservoir.
Matthew Delcher created a stone patio at Mahwah High School.
Justin Gernadi planted an evergreen treebuilt 3 picnic tables, and 2 benches project at an elementary school.
Martin Zakrzewski helped restore Winter’s Park.
Matthew Curtiss built 6 picnic tables, 12 benches and washed and re-stained old picnic tables for a camp for people with disabilities.
Michael Nelson helped give Mahwah Township Pool a makeover.
Michael Imperiosi designed carts for the math teachers at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School.

Congratulations, Eagle Scouts!
