Chappaqua Boy Scout Achieves Highest Honor!


Troop 1 Chappaqua is proud to announce their 100th Eagle Scout on their 100th Anniversary! As one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the country, Troop 1 is well distinguished and prides themselves as being an integral part of the Chappaqua Community. Their troop is made up of 45 boys, and is led by Dr. William Flank and Marc Toonkel.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank awarded to a Boy Scout. In 2013, only about 7% of Boy Scouts earned this impressive honor. To earn this award, a Boy Scout must earn 21 merit badges, serve six months in a troop leadership position, plan and lead a service project, participate in a Scoutmaster conference, and successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review.

Hunter Rodrick is proud to accept the high honor of Eagle Scout, after his hard work over the summer that included a project at the Glazier Arboretum. Hunter has shown dedication to making the community a better place, and will take the lessons he's learned as a Boy Scout with him as he enters the next chapter of his life.

The ceremony to honor Hunter will take place on June 11 at 7:00pm at West Orchard Elementary School.

Thank you to Hunter Rodrick and the rest of Troop 1 Chappaqua! We are so proud of you, and hope you continue the great work!
