TENAFLY, NJ — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) held the annual Fifth District Scout Honor Ceremony to celebrate the achievements of Scouts who, after completing projects to support their community, have earned the highest rank of the Boy Scout and Girl Scout programs.
“I am honored to celebrate the hard-earned achievements of all these Scouts who’ve attained the highest rank in the Scouting programs — the Boy Scout Rank of Eagle Scout and the Girl Scout Gold Award,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “Thank you to the young leaders — all of our Scouts here today — for your dedication to bettering our community and country. From your work supporting North Jersey families, veterans, students, and more, I see the same passion for service, community, and country that has fueled the Scouts for generations. I know you will all go forth and change the world.”
Gottheimer recognized 28 Scouts from across the Fifth District, acknowledging their projects and service to their communities.
This year’s Scouts completed projects including creating a buddy project to pair seniors in need with community members, collecting goods and donations for Ukraine, documenting the burial sites of our nation’s veterans, and many more.
Gottheimer was joined during the ceremony by Tenafly Mayor Mark Zinna, New Milford Councilmember Matt Seymour, and Director of Program for the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey Loreana Kirschner.
