Jack Brandon, Eagle #355!

Eagle Rank Badge And Medal
The Highest Honor Rank for a Scout is the coveted Eagle Rank that boys have to complete before their 18th birthday.

On November 28th, Jack Brandon passed his Eagle Board of Review at Eagle Advisor, Marguerite Giustina’s house. His Board consisted of John Picinich from Lenape Trail District, John Hartinger as Troop Committee Chair, as well as ASM Mike Brown, and former Scout/Eagle parent, Linda Bowers.

Jack is Troop 12’s Eagle #355!

His Project was to clear out overgrowth and beautify the Bellevue Avenue Entrance of Essex County’s very own  Brookdale Park, co-sponsored by the Brookdale Park Conservancy.

Onward and Upward!

Congratulations Jack!
