A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR DAVID LEROY JOHNSON FOR HIS NOTEWORTHY ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA AND TO CONGRATULATE HIM UPON ACHIEVING THE PRESTIGIOUS RANK OF EAGLE SCOUT, THE HIGHEST AWARD IN SCOUTING.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are pleased to learn that David Johnson of Troop 856 has successfully completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout; and

Whereas, to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout must demonstrate that he lives by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in his daily life; he must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or his community; and he must earn a total of twenty-one merit badges, actively serve in a position of responsibility within his troop for six months, take part in a Scoutmaster conference, and successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review; and

Whereas, David has effectively displayed his qualifications for this prestigious award. Throughout his time in the Boy Scouts, David has been recognized numerous times. He earned the Ward of Meritorious Action in 2016. Less than one percent of scouts earn this honor. The act that earned this recognition was his recognition of the fact that one of his teammates on the wrestling team was having a medical issue. When the teammate went into shock, David was able to immediately treat him for the symptoms; and

Whereas, also in 2016, David was awarded the Order of the Arrow, completing his Ordeal to gain entrance. David is also an avid archer, having competed in multiple regional, state-wide, and national tournaments; and

Whereas, he has held several leadership positions in the Boy Scouts. When he was in Troop 819, he served as Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, and Senior Patrol Leader. Within his current troop of 856, he serves as the Junior Assistant Scoutmaster; and

Whereas, for his Eagle Project, David built a gazebo for the residents at the NHC nursing home in Garden City; and

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the legacy of Scouting in America and take great pride in acknowledging the accomplishments of young South Carolinians like David who selflessly give of their time, talents, and energy to enrich their local communities and our State. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor David LeRoy Johnson for his noteworthy achievements in the Boy Scouts of America and congratulate him upon achieving the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to David LeRoy Johnson.
