Kyle Mack of New Windsor earns rank of Eagle Scout.

Kyle Anthony Mack of Boy Scout Troop 435, New Windsor, achieved the Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank in Scouting.  He is the son of Pete and Denise Mack of Viola.  A Court of Honor was held at Calvary Lutheran Church, New Windsor, on Nov. 15, 2015.  Scoutmaster Henry A. Wallace presided over the ceremony, and presented Kyle with the Eagle Scout badge and medal.  Wallace also presented Kyle’s father, Pete, the Eagle Scout badge and medal in 1988.

To become an Eagle Scout, a scout must remain active in the troop, earn a total of 21 merit badges, hold a troop leadership position, plan, develop and give leadership through a service project helpful to an organization within the community.  For his Eagle Scout project, Kyle cleaned up and performed maintenance at Hopewell Cemetery, New Windsor.  During the Court of Honor, Bob Olson and Brenda Luxmore, representing Hopewell Cemetery, presented Kyle with a special award recognizing his outstanding efforts on his Eagle Scout project.

Kyle has been actively involved in Scouting since second grade.  Since joining Boy Scouts in March of 2009, he has held the office of Assistant Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, and Junior Assistant Scoutmaster.  He earned 33 merit badges along his journey to Eagle.

Kyle is also active in cross country, track, National Honor Society, a Scholastic Team member and you can find him behind the sound board during all of the theater productions at Sherrard High School.  His future plans include graduating from high school in May 2016 and going to college to study engineering.
