A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CONGRATULATE MARSHALL ROGERS OF SPARTANBURG COUNTY FOR HIS REMARKABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA AND TO SALUTE HIM UPON ACHIEVING THE CELEBRATED RANK OF EAGLE SCOUT, THE HIGHEST AWARD IN SCOUTING.

Whereas, recently, Marshall Rogers of Troop 2 of the Palmetto Council successfully passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review and thus completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout; and

Whereas, the son of Marsh and Shannon Rogers, this Spartanburg Day School rising junior is an honor student and a member of the basketball and baseball teams. After high school graduation, he hopes to attend Davidson, Wake Forest, or Washington and Lee, with the goal of becoming an attorney. Presently, Marshall serves as an intern with the Hyde Law Firm; and

Whereas, during his years in Scouting, Marshall has served as quartermaster and guide for his troop, which is sponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg; and

Whereas, Marshall officially will receive the rank of Eagle Scout on Sunday, August 25, 2019; and

Whereas, for his Eagle project, on December 2, 2018, Marshall and his troop planted fifteen plum and apple trees adjacent to the Rail Trail for the benefit of the needy once the trees are mature. Southern Mulch donated several hundred dollars' worth of mulch for the project, and Piedmont Nursery donated half of the fruit trees; 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 complete his Eagle Scout Board of Review; and

Whereas, only about five percent of Boy Scouts complete these rigorous requirements to achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout; and

Whereas, the House is grateful for the legacy of Scouting in America and takes great pride in acknowledging the achievements of young South Carolinians like Marshall Rogers 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, congratulate Marshall Rogers of Spartanburg County for his remarkable accomplishments in the Boy Scouts of America and salute him upon achieving the celebrated rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Marshall Rogers.
