receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most prestigious of
Scouting honors, on July 29, 2012

WHEREAS, Alex Kastner, through his diligence and rigorous  efforts,  has
achieved  Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank, Eagle Scout; the
Eagle Court of Honor ceremony was held on Sunday, July 29, 2012; and
  WHEREAS, Alex Kastner, the son of Tom and Lesley Kastner, is a  member
of the Seneca Waterways Council, Boy Scouts of America, Troop 167; 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, Alex Kastner's project consisted of  an  enhancement  to  the
Gananda  Central  School  District  Concession  Stand,  sponsored by the
Gananda Sports Boosters; kitchen cabinets were donated and a layout  was
designed  based on these materials and available space; granite counter-
top material donated by Rocky Mountain Granite Inc., was also  installed
by  the team; and staining, kickboards, and the repair of swinging doors
on the side of the building facing the track/soccer field made  the  end
result a very well received project; and
  WHEREAS,  Alex  Kastner'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  Alex  Kastner  on  achieving the rank of Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Alex Kastner.
