Council Recognizes Pyska for His Attainment of Rank of Eagle Scout

October 14, 2014

A resolution sponsored by Niagara Falls Council Member Glenn Choolokian recognizes Andrew Pyska for his attainment of the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

Pyska of Troop 849 in Niagara Falls advanced through the ranks of tiger, bobcat, wolf, bear, and webelos, having earned 32 merit badges, including the Arrow of Light, Light of Christ, and Parvuli Dei Catholic Awards, before attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.

The resolution reads in part, "THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Niagara Falls, New York hereby recognizes Mr. Andrew Pyska of Troop 849, Niagara Falls, for his attainment of the rank of Eagle Scout, and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Niagara Falls wishes Mr. Pyska the best of luck in his future endeavors, with confidence in his ability to achieve the goals he sets for himself."

Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.

Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating "Scout Spirit" through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes a service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages.
