Six local Boy Scouts from Tujunga’s Troop 315 received their Eagle Scout badges at a Court of Honor last Saturday. The Scouts who were honored were: Rafaelle Azarraga, Dylan Bundarin, Carlos de Luna, Michael Duarte, Raymon Ramos and William RJ Torres.
The American Legion Hall was filled to capacity with scout troop members, friends and family who gathered together to celebrate this momentous occasion.
The presentation of the Eagle Scout Award is an important and serious matter. For the Eagle candidate, this is the climax in his Scouting efforts. The attainment of this award is made possible through the assistance of his his Scoutmasters, troop leaders, fellow Scouts, parents, family, friends and members of the community.
The Eagle is the highest recognition offered in Scouting. It is earned through the advancement program. The wearer of the Eagle award is the embodiment of Scouting’s best efforts and beliefs. Each candidate has distinguished himself through his continued performance of active service in Scouting. He is now trained and practiced in his leadership abilities. And he is marked by the character gained through an understanding of his citizenship and religious beliefs. These Eagle Scouts are the best of the best in Scouting.
