Center Moriches, NY - May 22, 2017 - Boy Scout Troop 414 came together at VFW Post 414 in Center Moriches to honor Christopher Ballas for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Legislator Kate Browning (WF-Shirley) and her Chief of Staff Josh Slaughter attended the ceremony and presented Christopher with a proclamation to recognize his achievement.
 
Eagle Scout is the highest rank a Boy Scout can attain, and it requires earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Christopher’s Eagle Scout project consisted of designing and constructing a storage unit for the Mastic Beach Ambulance Company.
 
In addition to obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout, Christopher is graduating from William Floyd High School this June and has already enlisted in the United State Marine Corps. He leaves for basic training at Paris Island in July.
       
“It was an honor to recognize Chris’s ascent to the highest rank of scouting,” said Legislator Browning. “Christopher has achieved an important goal, and I know the skills he has obtained will carry him far in his military career and life. He is a great example for our youth, he is a leader that all of his peers can look up to, and I thank him for his willingness to serve our Country.”
