Smithtown, NY - February 10, 2015 - Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta praised Andrew Oswald of St. James for achieving the esteemed rank of Eagle Scout at his recent Court of Honor. Andrew has been an active scout since age six when he was in first grade.
For his Eagle Scout Community Service Project, Andrew refurbished the interior and exterior of the Barred Owl cage at the Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown. A representative from Sweetbriar attended the ceremony and brought one of the owls with her to show to the audience.
“Andrew has demonstrated he is capable of responsibility and leadership by completing the tasks necessary to becoming an Eagle Scout. He received a baseball scholarship to attend the University of Bridgeport where he is pursuing a degree in Sports Medicine. I am sure that the skills and confidence he acquired during his scouting years will guide him in his future endeavors. I applaud his work ethic and athletic abilities and hope that he will remain committed to the 13th Legislative District,” said Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta.
