RESOLUTION NO. RS2008-181
A resolution recognizing Steven Olson on attaining the designation of Eagle Scout, Scouting’s highest award.
WHEREAS, on April 10, 2007 Steven Olson, obtained the rank of Eagle Scout and is well deserving of this recognition; and
WHEREAS, the Eagle Scout is the highest rank of recognition offered in Scouting; and
WHEREAS, to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout must advance through five ranks, starting with Tenderfoot, then moving to Second Class, First Class, Star, Life and then Eagle. A scout must earn 21 merit badges, and in addition to other requirements he must complete a service project that benefits a non-profit organization within the community; and
WHEREAS, Steven Olson, a valued member of Boy Scout Troop 624, is a dedicated young man who has earned the respect and admiration of his fellow scouts through his active participation in the many programs sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America; and
WHEREAS, he has truly exhibited a commitment to the scouting principals of honesty, fairness, and service to the community and has consistently conducted himself in a manner becoming an Eagle Scout; and
WHEREAS, a senior at Martin Luther King Jr., Magnet, Steven Olson, is involved in the Beta Club, the National Honor Society and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and his career ambition is to become a commercial pilot. For his Eagle service project he organized and constructed, with help from fellow scouts, 100 bat houses for the Nashville Zoo. He chose this project because bats feed on mosquitoes and helping bats survive protects humans and animals for mosquito-borne diseases; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council recognizes Steven Olson for his diligence, determination, and dedication in pursuing the highest honor awarded by the Boy Scouts of America and congratulate him on attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. The Metropolitan Council hereby goes on record as recognizing Steven Olson on attaining the designation of Eagle Scout, Scouting’s highest award.
Section 2. The Metropolitan Council Office is directed to prepare a copy of this Resolution to be presented to Steven Olson.
Section 3. This Resolution shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
