Tyler Rae Congratulated by Mayor and City Council on Earning Eagle Scout Honor

Whereas, the Boy Scouts of America is a vital force in the development of our youth through its many programs which encourage the ability of its members to do things for themselves and especially for others; and

Whereas, Tyler Rae is a member of Troop 232 and has not only proven himself to be an outstanding member of the Boy Scouts of American, but has attained the highest honor bestowed on a Scout – the Eagle Scout Award; and

Whereas, one of the major objectives in the Scouting program is to develop citizenship through community involvement and in addition to working for citizenship merit badges, Scouts are encouraged to participate in community service projects; and

Whereas, for his Eagle Scout project Tyler coordinated the renovation of the current flag pole located at the Emporia City Veteran’s Park; and

Whereas, the Eagle Scout Award is a distinction that will follow him throughout life and will be a beacon to others of the leadership quality and commitment this young man has shown; and

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, that I, Mary L. Person, Mayor and the Council of the City of Emporia, Virginia hereby congratulate Tyler Rae for his many accomplishments and especially recognize him for earning the distinguished rank of contributions and wish him much success in all of his future endeavors.
