LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  congratulating Keray L. Williams upon the occa-
sion of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most  pres-
tigious of Scouting honors, on April 13, 2013

WHEREAS,  Keray L. Williams, through his diligence and rigorous efforts,
has achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank, Eagle  Scout;
the  Eagle  Court  of Honor ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 13,
2013, at the Coram Fire Department, Coram, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Keray L. Williams is a member of Boy Scouts of America  Troop
64, Coram, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  America  has  achieved her greatest heights of glory through
the dedication, determination and tireless efforts  of  the  outstanding
citizens of this Nation; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is only with the continued diligence and devotion of our
youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and
  WHEREAS, The Boy Scouts of America and its members  are  dedicated  to
the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;
and
  WHEREAS,  The highest achievement of leadership in Scouting, earned by
only five percent of all Boy Scouts, is the distinguished rank of  Eagle
Scout; and
  WHEREAS,  This outstanding young man has been involved in Scouting for
many years, has lived up to Scouting's ideals and has  attained  all  of
the  necessary achievements, including completion of a community service
project, which was successfully planned, developed and executed; and
  WHEREAS, For his project, Keray L. Williams added more shelving to the
pantry located in the Trinity United Methodist Church; with the help  of
a  couple  of  fellow scouts, his father and a family friend, he emptied
out the pantry, took the shelves down, washed  all  the  walls  and  the
floor,  and  painted  the  walls  and the ceiling white; he then put the
shelves back up which completed his vital project; and
  WHEREAS, Keray L. Williams' perseverance in rising through  the  ranks
to Eagle Scout is a strong indication of his ability to master difficult
tasks;  his  accomplishment will enable him to emerge as a leader, fully
equipped to meet the challenges of today's complex society; and
  WHEREAS, This new Eagle Scout is a credit to his family,  his  school,
his community, his State and his Nation, and no doubt his future will be
filled with accomplishments of equal importance; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative Body pause in its deliberations, in
recognition of the significance  of  this  meritorious  achievement,  to
congratulate  and honor Keray L. Williams on achieving the rank of Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Keray L. Williams.
