(Munnsville, NY – Jan. 2013Slator project) The American Legion of Munnsville now has a wind wall pavilion thanks to John Slator, 16, of Munnsville. It was his Eagle Scout project.

Through the delegation of his team and determination, his project was a success, and fulfills the community service requirement needed for advancing to Eagle Scout rank. Eagle is the pinnacle of achievement and leadership in Scouting.

When asked about his project Slator said, “Being a leader is a very fine balance of instructing and teaching others what they should do and how to help. An obstacle we faced was raising the necessary funds and materials within the original time frame.”

Slator and his team of Scouts and adult leaders gathered all the necessary materials and worked diligently on this lofty project. The project and materials were funded through fundraising efforts by Slator and his team.

Achieving Eagle rank is never easy, but for every Scout that receives his badge, it is a defining moment he will remember for the rest of his life. When asked about what being an Eagle means to him, Slator said, “Being an Eagle Scout means that I have been dedicated and committed to Scouting and reached one of my highest goals.”

Slator currently attends Stockbridge Valley High School. In the future he plans to attend college and study to be a math teacher.
