BSA Scout Troop 40 honors first Eagle Scouts
BSA Scout Troop 40, sponsored by Bethesda on the Bay Lutheran Church in Bay Village, celebrated the accomplishments of two young women who are the first in their troop to achieve Eagle Scout. Eagle Scout is the highest rank in scouting and is earned by less than 4% of all scouts. The scouts recognized at the Eagle Court of Honor on Oct. 24 were Jennifer R. Koomar and Norah A. Hamil.
In addition to earning a minimum of 21 merit badges, they completed service projects that benefit the community including building a compost bin for the Village Project, a community organization that provides meals and care for families experiencing cancer, and building a customized sundial memorial marker for Bay High School dedicated to Sabrina Noelle DuPrey, a friend and classmate who passed away.
The Eagle Court of Honor included presentations to the Eagles by Bay Village mayor (and father of one of the newest Eagle Scouts) Paul Koomar; Cuyahoga County Council Member Nan Baker; Interim Superintendent of Bay Village Schools Char Shryock; State Representative Monique Smith; Jim Potter, past commander of American Legion Post 385; and Richard Gash, Skipper of Sea Scout Ship 41. The Eagles were also presented American flags that had been flown over the U.S. Capitol in their honor.
