Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Troop 303 of Orinda on Feb. 25 held an Eagle Court of Honor at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church to commemorate the achievement of five Scouts, each of whom recently obtained scouting's highest rank, Eagle Scout. Honorees included Leo Maximillian Streubel, William Theodore Ting Steinmeier, Thomas Griffin Wilson, Aidan Roque Dial and Jon-Marc Alexander Mosher.
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in scouting with the BSA. To obtain the rank of Eagle Scout, candidates must now earn a minimum of 21 merit badges, including 14 Eagle-required badges, demonstrate leadership and Scout spirit and successfully complete an Eagle service project benefiting the community.
Bruce McGurk, chair of the Briones District of Scouts BSA's Golden Gate Area Council, presided over the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony. Former Mayor of Orinda, Bill Judge, presented each Scout with an official proclamation of the Orinda City Council on behalf of Mayor Inga Miller, declaring officially Feb. 26 as Jon-Marc Alexander Mosher Day, Feb. 27 as William Theodore Ting Steinmeier Day, Feb. 28 as Thomas Griffin Wilson Day, March 1 as Leo Maximillian Streubel Day, and March 2 as Aidan Roque Dial Day. County Supervisor Candace Andersen (District 2) as well as representative Aaron Sanchez from U.S. Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (District 10) presented certificates of recognition and congratulations to the Scouts. State Assemblymember Rebecca Bauer-Kahan and State Sen. Steve Glazer were unable to attend but sent certificates of congratulations and recognition as well. The newly confirmed Eagle Scouts thanked their Scout leaders, community, parents and fellow Scouts who helped them achieve this rank and honor.
Troop 303 is a member of the Briones District of the Golden Gate Area Council of the BSA and has been serving the Lamorinda area since 1964. Scout Troop 303 (303B & 3030G) serves boys and girls in Orinda, California and the surrounding communities.
