On Saturday, January 4th, Mayor Tony Perry attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Ceremony for five young men from Boy Scout Troop 32 at the United Methodist Church in Middletown. The scouts completed the projects below in order to attain Eagle Scout status: 

  • John (JT) Amberg, a 2019 graduate of Middletown High School South, did a memorial project in honor of Donald DeLue, a famous sculptor from Middletown. JT created a website for the sculptor, interviewed people who knew him and uploaded those memories to Story Corps and the National Hall of Records. For the final part of his project, he added plaques to different DeLue sculptures in the Middletown area that included QR codes that direct you to the website to learn more about the sculptor.
  • William Dean, a 2019 graduate of Communications High School, planned and directed the installation of the Stations of the Cross outside St. Leo the Great Roman Catholic Church in Lincroft. His goal was to allow easy and convenient access to the Stations for busy churchgoers . 
  • Jake Winter, a 2019 graduate of the Marine Academy of Science and Technology, built shelving units that were able to display fresh fruits for the food pantry of St. Anthony’s of Padua. 
  • Tyler Lavelle graduated from the Academy of Law and Public Safety in 2019. His Eagle Scout project included clearing an old fire road, putting in a new fence and adding a small entrance for foot traffic.This project also allows the fire department easier access to the woods behind Lincroft Firehouse so they can respond faster to any emergencies in this area.
  • Peter De Celie, a 2019 graduate of Middletown High School South, built and installed two information kiosks and a sign post at two lakes located on the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. He also updated an existing kiosk located at a third lake. The kiosks are used to display current fishing rules and regulations, general information and a description of the fish found in the lakes. 

Congratulations to these young men on this impressive achievement!
