LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION congratulating Sean Owen Harris upon the occasion
of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most prestigious
of Scouting honors

WHEREAS,  Sean  Owen Harris, 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
Saturday, June 1, 2013, at St. Augustine's School in Ossining, New York;
and
  WHEREAS, Sean Owen Harris is a member of Boy Scouts of  America  Troop
49 in Ossining and has served the Troop in many capacities; 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, Sean Owen Harris chose a project bene-
fiting St. Augustine's Church, which  sponsors  Troop  49;  his  project
involved  cataloging  all  the  headstones  in  the  old  section of St.
Augustine's cemetery and coordinating the  transcription  of  the  head-
stones;  photos were taken and labeled by headstone, plot and where they
were positioned in the cemetery, and  put  into  searchable  slideshows,
alongside  their  transcribed text, providing a digital catalogue of the
cemetery; and
  WHEREAS, Sean Owen Harris'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 Sean Owen Harris on achieving the rank of Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Sean Owen Harris.
