Local People

Jack Urso and Adam Kusluch of Troop #4 received recognition for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout at a ceremony held at St. Louise de Marillac church in Upper Saint Clair on Sunday, October 22.

Pictured from left are: Troop # 4 Scoutmaster Tom O'Brien; new Eagle Scout Jack Urso; new Eagle Scout Adam Kusluch; and Elks Lodge 2213 Representative Gene Eckman.

Both scouts received many letters of recognition from national, state, and local government leaders and dignitaries. Gene Eckman, an Elks representative from the Pittsburgh South Hills Elks Lodge 2213 in Bethel Park, presented framed award certificates from Lodge 2213 and the Elks Grand Lodge, located in Chicago, a US flag, and an Elks scouting gold pin to each of the new scouts.

One of the final challenges that must be completed to earn this highest rank and very prestigious award is to complete a community service challenge called their Eagle Project. Jack's Eagle Project benefited military personnel serving abroad. It consisted of going to various local businesses and collecting/buying personal items, then assembling 150 care packages, which were presented to the Air National Guard members upon deployment in May of this year. Adam's Eagle Project benefited the Bethel Park Lions Club. It consisted of refurbishing a wooded trail, creating an arboretum by labeling various trees along the trail, and building and erecting entrance signs for the trail.
