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

WHEREAS, Patrick Connor, through his diligence and rigorous efforts, has
achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank, Eagle  Scout;  he
will  be  honored  at  an  Eagle  Court  of Honor ceremony to be held on
Sunday, June 16, 2013, at the Our Lady of Peace Parish Center in Geneva,
New York; and
  WHEREAS, The son of Pat and Erica Connor, Patrick Connor is  a  member
of Boy Scouts of America Troop 4 in Geneva, 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 Eagle project, securing  resources  from  the  Geneva
City  School District and the City of Geneva Department of Public Works,
Patrick Connor renovated a pathway kids  always  used,  cutting  through
neighbor's yards, to get to school; and
  WHEREAS,  With the help of a crew he assembled, Patrick Connor cleared
the area and prepped it for paving, hauling in lots of stone and, today,
students use the walkway rather than cutting through people's yards; and
  WHEREAS, Patrick Connor'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 Patrick Connor on achieving  the  rank  of  Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Patrick Connor.
