prestigious of Scouting honors

WHEREAS,  Adam  Alexander  Kurisko,  through  his diligence and rigorous
efforts, has achieved Scouting's  highest  and  most  prestigious  rank,
Eagle  Scout;  an Eagle Court of Honor ceremony will be held in recogni-
tion of this accomplishment; and
  WHEREAS, Adam Kurisko, the son of Peter  and  Lillian  Kurisko,  is  a
member  of Boy Scouts of America Troop 386 of the Hudson Valley Council;
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, Adam Kurisko performed landscape beautifica-
tion  around  the  Montgomery,  New York Village Hall; the new landscape
included slate stone retaining  walls  around  the  historic  building's
sign,  clock  and flagpole; in addition, he planted flowers and replaced
the mulch in the existing flower beds; he also scraped and repainted the
stairs and handicap access ramp, all  before  the  annual  Memorial  Day
parade; and
  WHEREAS,  Adam  Kurisko'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 Adam Alexander Kurisko on achieving the rank of
Eagle Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Adam Alexander Kurisko.
