LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  congratulating  Tyler Benjamin Searles upon the

prestigious of Scouting honors, on November 10, 2013

WHEREAS,  Tyler  Benjamin  Searles,  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,
November 10, 2013, at Congregational Christian Church,  in  Ravena,  New
York; and
  WHEREAS, Tyler Benjamin Searles, son of Brian and Alicia Searles, is a
member of Boy Scouts of America Troop 1067; and
  WHEREAS,  The  younger  brother of Emilie Rose Searles, Tyler Benjamin
Searles is a 2013 graduate  of  Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk  Central  School
District;  he  has  enlisted  in the United States Marine Corps and will
begin basic training mid-November at Parris Island, South Carolina; 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, Tyler Benjamin Searles planned, oversaw and
completed the cleaning of the basement of the Unitas Memorial  VFW  Post
9594,  Ravena,  New  York; this space was full of medical equipment that
was used for the Post's Medical Equipment Loan Program; through word  of
mouth,  the Knights of Columbus Mother McAuley Council 3424, Ravena, New
York, volunteered to continue the  program;  the  usable  equipment  was
transferred  to  the  Knights of Columbus and the rest was disassembled;
the metals were recycled and the money from the recycling  was  used  to
offset  the  cost of a dumpster to remove the remaining trash; with this
space empty and cleaned, the VFW now has more usable space; and
  WHEREAS, Tyler Benjamin Searles' 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 Tyler Benjamin Searles on achieving the  rank  of
Eagle Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Tyler Benjamin Searles.
