Jamal Alexander Eissa, a 2011 graduate, attained the highest Scout honor when he received his Eagle Court of Honor on Saturday, May 19.
The Court of Honor is the official presentation of his Eagle Scout certificate and medal, and includes letters of congratulation/commendation. This is the ceremony in which he is recognized and honored by his troop, family and community.
Eissa's Eagle project consisted of the removal of 50 feet of invasive vegetation blocking a beautiful view of the Hudson River, as well as building three benches for a nature classroom and constructing two 6-foot fences around two hundred gallon drainage barrels.
This was all completed at the Croton Point Nature Center. More than 300 hours of work were contributed by volunteers and scouts.
Yorktown councilman Vishnu Patel, town justice Salvatore Lagonia and county legislator Michael Kaplowitz presented the Eagle Scout with congratulatory certificates.
