LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  congratulating  Michael  Anthony Clark upon the
occasion of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle  Scout,  the  most
prestigious of Scouting honors, on May 17, 2014

WHEREAS,  Michael  Anthony  Clark,  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,
May 17, 2014, at Miller Place High School in Miller Place, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Michael Anthony Clark, son of Anthony and Deborah Clark, is a
member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 204, Miller Place, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  A  student  at Mr. Sinai High School, Class of 2014, Michael
Anthony Clark has been on the Principal List  and  Honor  Roll,  partic-
ipated in Varsity track, and received All-Division First Team for Varsi-
ty Football; upon graduation, he will attend University of Sciences; 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, Michael Anthony Clark organized, fundraised,
built, and installed three bat boxes at Cedar Beach,  Mount  Sinai,  New
York; these boxes will help to stablize the local ecosystem by introduc-
ing a natural predator of pests such as mosquitoes into the environment;
he  hopes  the boxes will house hundreds of bats which will decrease the
mosquito population at Cedar  Beach  while  being  pesticide  free,  and
making for a pleasurable day at the shore for its visitors; and
  WHEREAS,  Michael  Anthony  Clark'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 lead-
er,  fully  equipped  to meet the challenges of today's complex society;
  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  Michael Anthony Clark on achieving the rank of
Eagle Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Michael Anthony Clark.
