Eagles’ wings

This new Eagle Scout received Scouting’s most distinguished honor at a ceremony on April 22, at St. Bernard’s Parish, and our roving photog Sean Murphy was there to capture the flying-high moment for proud borough son Michael Gidiuli, family, fellow Scouts, Scoutmaster John Farrell, and Councilman Alan Maisel (D–Mill Basin).

Michael received his rank by earning a minimum of 21 merit badges, as well as planning, developing, and leading a service project that illustrated both leadership and commitment to duty. Michael’s project consisted of providing child identification kits, assisting them in filling them in, and providing a brief explanation. As part of the kits, he photographed and fingerprinted the children. His project will help parents have all information readily available in one place for police in the event that a child is missing.

And if all that wasn’t enough, he had to pass an Eagle Scout board of review, to boot.

Standing O stands and salutes Michael, and wishes him luck and success as he soars forth as an Eagle Scout.

Boy Scout Troop 76 at St. Bernard’s Parish [2055 E. 69th St. and Veterans Avenue in Mill Basin, (718) 763–5533].
