LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION congratulating Quinton Marchand upon the occasion
of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most prestigious
of Scouting honors

WHEREAS,  Quinton  Marchand, 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 Sunday, April 28,
2013, at St. Martin Lutheran Church in Webster, New York; and
  WHEREAS, The son of Eileen and Paul Marchand, Quinton  Marchand  is  a
member of Boy Scouts of America Troop No. 110; 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;
  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, Quinton Marchand spent 300 hours organizing,
raising funds for and completing work on an athletic storage outbuilding
at Bishop Kearney High School in Rochester, New York; and
  WHEREAS, The building project had been abandoned two years ago and the
deteriorating structure had become  an  eyesore  as  well  as  a  safety
hazard;  Quinton  Marchand tore the building down to its foundation, and
properly framed, sided and roofed it, making it weather tight and  main-
tenance free; and
  WHEREAS,  Quinton  Marchand is an honor roll student at Bishop Kearney
High School and a member of the National Honor Society;  this  multi-ta-
lented  young  man  is  involved  with  many extracurricular activities,
including Varsity Track and Field, Varsity Football,  Band,  Folk  Group
and Peer Ministry; and
  WHEREAS,  Quinton  Marchand's 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 Quinton Marchand on achieving the rank  of  Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Quinton Marchand.
