Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School
“When I immigrated to this country from Ireland and attained my first job, my Manager was an Eagle Scout,” said Jennifer Gallagher. “I came to greatly admire this man, and I decided that if I were someday blessed with a son I would want him to become an Eagle Scout.”
Gallagher’s wish, which she shared as part of her “Parent’s Remarks” during a recent ceremony, came true as her son Vincent received his Eagle Scout award in front of a crowd including fellow scouts, scout leaders, parents, and distinguished guests.
At the Boy Scout Troop 125 “Court of Honor” held on the evening of December 5 at Christ Church United Methodist in Fair Haven, Robert (Robbie) List was also awarded the Eagle Scout pin.
Shawn Chasmar, Brian Lenahan, William (Billy) Perkins, and Matthew (Matt) Valko also were awarded the rank of Eagle Scout at an Eagle Court of Honor held on August 3 at the Church of the Nativity in Fair Haven.
The six scouts are Rumson-Fair Haven High School students and graduates and are affiliated with Boy Scout Troop 125, which is hosted by Christ Church United Methodist in Fair Haven.
