SCRANTON — Eagle Scout Tim Walsh, a member of the North Scranton Boy Scout Troop 57, chartered by the Mary Mother of God Parish Holy Rosary Church, recently received a commendation from the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Recruiting and Retention Battalion. Presented by CH (CPT) Tyler Parry, the certificate of recognition was awarded for showing exceptional leadership, fidelity and citizenship by attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.
The Pennsylvania Army National Guard respects this accomplishment to the extent that Eagle Scouts enlist as Private 2nd Class, should they join the Pennsylvania Army National Guard upon graduation of high school.
This award is special to Walsh, as his father served in Iraq and retired from the Pennsylvania Army National Guard after more than twenty years of service.
Earning the rank of Eagle Scout at the young age of 13, Tim will have years left to enjoy all that Scouting has to offer. He plans to continue his scouting with Troop 57 and remain as an adult member after reaching the age of 18.
Walsh is an Olyphant and Dalton resident and attends Wyoming Seminary Lower School. He is an active member of his lacrosse team, active at Pocono Mountain Bible Camp, a child advocate through the Children’s Advocacy Center and Marley’s Mission, a lung cancer advocate through Lung Cancer Alliance and is active in the community through his nonprofit, Camera For A Cure.
