Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Josh Jensen, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro for an official Eagle Scout Award Ceremony at Tuesday evening’s meeting of the Greece Town Board. The Town of Greece Eagle Scout Recognition Medal is presented to all Boy Scouts who have recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in their local troop.
“It is an honor for me to present proclamations and medals to the hard working and determined young men who have shown that commitment and perseverance lead to success” said Supervisor Bill Reilich. “At Tuesday evening’s Town Board meeting, I had the privilege of presenting a proclamation and medal to Tyler Stevenson who has recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop Number 197. Tyler attained the rank of Eagle Scout through his efforts towards clearing the Greece Athena High School courtyard. The bushes in the courtyard were overgrown, the benches were in much-needed repair, and landscaping, edging, weeding, and trimming all needed to be done. Tyler organized and supervised various groups of coworkers, piers, and adults in order to complete this project. Thank you for your efforts towards a project that will be enjoyed by Greece Athena High School staff and students for years to come!”
