Via Mike Georgetti:
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal was among the dignitaries at a recent Court of Honor held by Boy Scout Troop 12 at St. Agnes Church.
The four new Eagle Scouts received citations from the U.S. Senate, and were also honored by State Rep. James Maroney and Alderman Phil Vetro, D-4.
All four Scouts were also sent Proclamations and Citations from U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, State Sen. Gayle Slossberg, Gov. Dannel Malloy and Mayor Ben Blake.
Troop 12 chairman Michael Georgetti said attaining the top rank of Eagle is a huge accomplishment. “It requires many years of hard work and service to one’s community. Of all the Scouts that register in the BSA, only about 2 percent ever make it to become an Eagle Scout.”
Troop 12 at St. Agnes Church has had 10 Scouts earn the rank of Eagle in the past 10 years, and 24 troop members have received the top rank since 1992.
To receive the honor, each Scout must complete an approved community service project.
