RESOLUTION NO. R99-1666
A resolution honoring Mr. Case White on the occasion of becoming an Eagle Scout.
WHEREAS, Mr. Case White, age sixteen, met all the strenuous and demanding requirements of becoming an Eagle Scout and was awarded the honor on April 29, 1999; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Case White, while born with spina bifida, courageously declined to accept the opportunity to apply for alternate merit badges and, instead, forthrightly faced the challenges to meet the same merit badge requirements of other Eagle Scouts; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Case White, through his solid preparation and strong personal perservance, earned his physical merit badge in swimming at Camp Manchester; and
WHEREAS, Mr. Case White's Eagle project was chosen to benefit the Saddle Up! riding program for physically and mentally challenged children in Middle Tennessee. He chose to pour a concrete sidewalk for the wheelchair ramp at Saddle Up! headquarters after seeing the difficulty wheelchair-bound children experience in maneuvering in high grass; and
WHEREAS, through Mr. Case White's efforts, more children are able to experience the excitement of riding on the back of a horse.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
SECTION 1. That Mr. Case White be officially honored and congratulated for his tenacity, talents, and will-power in earning Eagle Scout recognition under difficult and demanding physical and mental circumstances.
