In presenting the certificates, the freeholders praised the scouts for their willingness to help others and for completing their respective service projects that earned them the Eagle Scout rank.

“We are honored to present certificates to these young men who are future leaders of our county, state and nation,’’ said Freeholder Director Kathy DeFillippo. “The projects these outstanding young people must complete to become an Eagle Scout take a great deal time and commitment on their part.

“These young men represent some of the best in the young people of Morris County, and we are extremely proud of the work they have done to improve their communities,’’ added Deputy Freeholder Director Hank Lyon.
