DENVILLE, NJ - Three Boy Scouts from Denville were among eight Scouts recently honored by the Morris County freeholders for attaining Eagle Scout status.

Joseph Nowacki, Michael Kuser and Quinn Logush, all of Denville Troop 118, were praised and given certificates of achievement by the county leaders. 

“It is a privilege for the Board of Freeholders to celebrate the positive efforts of these young men and women who took it upon themselves to make positive impacts on their respective communities,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana, referring to all the new Eagle Scouts. “They, obviously, are the future leaders of Morris County, and we salute them," he added.

Nowacki recently graduated from Oratory Preparatory School in Summit, "where he excelled in academics and sports – earning the Scout Scholar Athlete Award for 2016," said a statement by the county.

"For his Eagle Scout project, Joe managed a team of volunteers to build, install, and paint a wooden recycling storage receptacle and two wooden benches at Cook’s Pond in Denville, where he is a lifeguard and swim instructor."

Kuser is a recent graduate of Morris Knolls High School, where he was a member of the National Honor Society and Interact Club. He will attend Penn State University.

"For his Eagle project, Mike worked with 26 adult and scout volunteers to upgrade Denville’s Beaver Brook neighborhood by improving the parking lot at the intersection of Ford Road and Beaver Brook Lane," said the county. "The project included installation of wooden guardrail fencing, cement car stops, signage, and creation of an Alpine Garden on the corner of the lot."

Logush is also a recent graduate of Morris Knolls High School, where he was a member of the Morris Knolls Chorale and Madrigals; vice president of the Interact Club and treasurer of the Thespian Honor Society. For his Eagle Scout project, Quinn "planned, designed and implemented a professionally made sign and landscape for the Ayres Knuth Farm Foundation in Denville, which is on the National Register of Historic Places," said the county
