The son of William (Mick) and Cheryl Falappi, Michael has been involved in scouting for 8 years. Since joining Troop 1448, he has earned all 21 merit badges required for Eagle, as well as 13 additional merit badges. He has served as both Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader. In 2017, he was nominated and selected by his fellow scouts into the Order of the Arrow, and became a Brotherhood Member

in 2018. Also in 2018, Michael earned the NRA/BSA Weekly Rifle Champion Award at Heritage Reservation. He earned this award by obtaining the highest score in marksmanship out of over 300 contenders.

Michael is a Graduate of Ringgold High School. Michael enjoys music, and plays multiple instruments. At Ringgold, he was a member of Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Musical Pit Orchestra, and Ringgold Indoor Percussion.

Michael is a member of St. Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic Church.

This summer, Michael was employed as a retail associate/laborer at Rabe’s Trading Post and Guns in Monongahela, and will be attending West Virginia University, where he will study Music Industry.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Michael organized the restoration of the Monongahela Station Gazebo, owned by the Monongahela Area Revitalization Corporation, located between the Monongahela High Rise and Monongahela McDonald’s. The gazebo was cleaned, stained, and painted, and the area around the gazebo was re-landscaped and new landscape timber was installed to replace decayed railroad

ties. 19 individuals were involved, and the project totaled 221 hours of combined planning and labor.

A court of honor ceremony took place outdoors on August 9 2020 at St. Andrew the Apostle Parish (Donora Site). Michael thanked his friends, family and the members of troop 1448 for helping him not only with his project, but for all that they have done throughout his many successful years in scouting.
