Centerport - Supervisor Chad A.
Lupinacci and Councilwoman Joan Cergol honored Eagle Scout Jack Albertson for
his outstanding community work and Eagle Scout accomplishment at the Centerport
Fire Department on Friday May 11.
Scout Albertson has shown great
leadership and academic potential. As a member of Troop 113, Scout
Albertson has held several leadership positions including Patrol Leader and
Quartermaster. Albertson is also a founding member of the Robotics Club
at Harborfields High School. When he is not building robots or working
with his fellow Scouts, Albertson embraces physical challenges. Recently,
Albertson completed a 50-mile hike in 5 days from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
to Gettysburg Battlefield, Pennsylvania, as well as a 75 mile canoe trip up the
Allagash River. At the end of this year, Scout Albertson will be
attending Binghamton University to study computer science.
At the ceremony, Supervisor
Lupinacci issued a Proclamation to the young scout, in recognition of his
academic and leadership abilities: “It takes considerable determination to
attain the rank of Eagle Scout, and having done so is a great reflection on Mr.
Albertson’s character and his potential.”
“I have known Jack and the Albertson family for many years
and have seen Jack mature into an exemplary young man. I share his and his
family’s pride in this accomplishment and am happy that I was able to be with
him and his family in recognizing this significant achievement,” said
Councilwoman Joan Cergol.
