SOMERS, N.Y. – Sean Bruskewicz of Boy Scouts of America Troop 376 was promoted to Eagle Scout at a ceremony on Sunday, June 25, at the Church of the Good Shepherd.
To earn the rank, Bruskewicz demolished an existing set of cement stairs, and designed and built a deck. Bruskewicz, who is a Somers resident and recent graduate of Byram Hills High School, has earned 36 merit badges while in Troop 376; only 21 are needed to earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
Town Councilman Richard Clinchy and Mike Kaplowitz, chairman of the County Board of Legislators, attended the ceremony. A representative of state Sen. Terrence Murphy’s office attended and presented proclamations to Bruskewicz. Gov. Andrew Cuomo also sent a certificate of recognition.
Bruskewicz’s cousins, Connor and Brian Pencola, from Boy Scouts of America Troop 212 in Cary, N.C. participated in the ceremony. His brother, Liam Bruskewicz, was the master of ceremonies.
Rev. Hal Roark did the invocation during the ceremony. The Church of the Good Shepherd is the sponsor of Troop 376.
