Proclamation recognizing Peter Roger Lesnett upon receiving the Eagle Scout Award.




     WHEREAS, founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest scouting organizations and youth organizations in the United States, with more than 2.4 million youth participants. The Boy Scouts of America goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations; and


     WHEREAS, Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program. After a lengthy review process, only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted the Eagle Scout rank, which requires earning at least 21 merit badges. The Eagle Scout must demonstrate Scout spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath, Law and Mission, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages; and


     WHEREAS, Peter Roger Lesnett, a member of Boy Scout Troop 71 in Allison Park, has recently met all necessary requirements to advance to the rank of Eagle Scout; and


     WHEREAS, Peter organized and led a project for the Elfinwild Presbyterian Church in Glenshaw, PA. The project consisted of constructing and installing storage shelves and a platform to be utilized by the church and outside organizations that use the facility; and


     WHEREAS, over the years, Peter has served numerous leadership roles for the Boy Scouts of America including, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and Patrol Leader; 


NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that I, Allegheny Council Member Anita Prizio, do hereby commend and recognize Peter Roger Lesnett upon receiving the Eagle Scout Award, and we congratulate him for dedicating time, leadership, creativity and effort to making his community better.


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto caused the Seal of the County of Allegheny to be affixed this 12th day of January 2021.
