Josh plays in the horn section of the Bethel Park Band, so he proudly played the music for the Color Guard's opening and closing of his own Eagle Court.

Josh received many letters of recognition and congratulation from national, state, and local leaders and dignitaries. Attending and speaking were PA State Representative Rick Saccone; Allegheny County Council District 5 Representative Sue Means; and Gene Eckman of the Pittsburgh South Hills Elks Lodge 2213. Mr. Eckman presented the new Eagle Scout with two award certificates, one from the local Bethel Park Lodge 2213 and one from the Elks Grand Lodge, located in Chicago. Other personal awards given by the Elks included a personal US flag and a gold lapel pin signifying the 80+ years of closeness between the Elks and scouting.

The final challenge that must be completed to earn this highest rank of the Boy Scouts is a community service project called their Eagle project. Josh's project benefited the Christ United Methodist Church of Bethel Park. It consisted of cleaning up the area in the front of the church and laying down 12 tons of landscaping rock.Pictured (l-r) are: Tom O'Brien, Troop 4 Scoutmaster; Walt Vitvitsky, father;
