E&M is proud to support the efforts of Justin Spelman, a STEM Student at Bloomfield High School, Bloomfield, NY, as he works to achieve his Eagle Scout rank with the Boy Scouts of America. Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Scouts program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned this rank after a lengthy review process. The Table 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. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout. Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership, and merit badge requirements.
In Mr. Spelman’s words, “I am working on my Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in Scouting. The biggest requirements to earn the Eagle rank is a community service project. For my project, I have decided to build a seating area with a flagpole at Overakers Cemetery in Middlesex.”
Mr. Spelman developed the design, architecture, and managed the implementation of his project. This project was months in the making but the results are ones to be proud of. Congratulations, Justin Spelman, for a project well done!
