On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, Matthew Metrovich was acknowledged as having completed all the requirements of the Eagle Rank at a Court of Honor conducted in the First Presbyterian Church of Finleyville.

Present at the ceremony were members and leaders of Troop 1452, sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church of Finleyville, members of Matt’s family, and many friends. Also present were Union Township supervisors Steve Parish and Paul Chasko; a staff member of State Representative Rick Saccone; Washington County Commissioner Larry Maggi; and PA State Senator Camera Bartolotta, who each presented certificates of recognition of Matthew’s scouting achievements.

As part of the Court of Honor ceremony, the leaders of Troop 1452 attested to Matthew’s completion of all the requirements and ranks to make him eligible for the Eagle Award, including earning 35 merit badges that qualified him for the Star, Life and Eagle ranks. They also attested that he had successfully passed an Eagle Board of Review, conducted this past April.

Every aspiring Eagle Scout must complete a significant community service project. As his project, Matt chose to renovate the parking area of Wright’s United Methodist Church in Venetia. The project consisted of the design and layout of the parking area, including the construction and installation of concrete tire bumper stops with designations for handicapped parking, adding air conditioner security posts, and an overall cleanup of the parking area.

The Eagle Scout badge was presented to Mrs. Metrovich by Scoutmaster Andrew Sneed. Mrs. Metrovich, in turn, pinned the badge to Matt’s shirt. After receiving his badge, Michael presented his mother Linda and father John with memento pins of the Eagle ceremony, after which all present offered their congratulations.

Matt resides with his family in Union Township and is now involved in the part-time operation of his photography business.
