ROSELAND, NJ – In recognition of the valuable contributions from the Boy Scouts of America to the Roseland community and the nation, the Roseland mayor and council honored resident Warren King on Tuesday for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouting program.

“Scouts is a very helpful vessel for creating really outstanding young people in our nation,” said King. “I’m very happy to be recognized and supported by such a large audience of people.”

King, a member of Boy Scouts of American Troop 3, has completed all of the requirements that find him worthy of the rank of Eagle Scout. He has earned 34 merit badges, although the requirement to become an Eagle Scout is only 21, as well as the gold and bronze palms.

“Scouting provides the foundation, training and leadership skills that prepare our youth to be the leaders of tomorrow,” said Mayor John Duthie. “Warren serves as an example to youth through his high level of personal achievement, leadership and community service and has made the Borough of Roseland very proud.”

One of the requirements to become an Eagle Scout is to complete a community service project that improves the individual's neighborhood, community or region. King’s project was to reconstruct a lean-to at Camp Wyanokie, which will remain at the camp as a reminder of King’s hard work and dedication.

Duthie added that this presentation was significant to him because he served as the Den Leader for King’s Cub Scout pack more than a decade ago. He also said that “like in education, an achievement such as Eagle Scouting is something that you earn yourself and you put your own sweat equity into."

“It’s also something that no one will ever take away from you,” said Duthie. “It’s a really good life lesson to earn something that no one can every take away from you.”

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
