TO CONGRATULATE GUY HENRY ATCHLEY OF SPARTANBURG COUNTY FOR HIS REMARKABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA AND TO SALUTE HIM UPON ACHIEVING THE CELEBRATED RANK OF EAGLE SCOUT, THE HIGHEST AWARD IN SCOUTING.
Whereas, recently, Guy Henry Atchley of Troop 11 of the Palmetto Council successfully passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review and thus completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout; and
Whereas, the son of Ryan and Kim Atchley, this Dorman High School rising senior has participated in JROTC, earning the Executive Officer position, and has been an active member in the youth program at Morningside Baptist Church in Spartanburg; and
Whereas, during his years in Scouting, Guy Henry Atchley has been named to the Order of the Arrow (Scouting's national honor society) and has served his troop as Senior Patrol Leader, and attended the 2017 National Jamboree with Palmetto Council Troop 4323; and
Whereas, Guy Henry Atchley officially received the rank of Eagle Scout on Saturday, June 22, 2019; and
Whereas, for his Eagle project, Guy Henry Atchley created a thirty-foot-long bridge to span a tributary creek of the Tyger River, improving public trail access for the Nesbitt Shoals Nature Park; and
Whereas, to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout must demonstrate that he lives by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in his daily life; he must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or his community; and he must earn a total of twenty-one merit badges, actively serve in a position of responsibility within his troop for six months, take part in a Scoutmaster conference, and complete his Eagle Scout Board of Review; and
Whereas, only about five percent of Boy Scouts complete these rigorous requirements to achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout; and
Whereas, the House is grateful for the legacy of Scouting in America and takes great pride in acknowledging the achievements of young South Carolinians like Guy Henry Atchley who selflessly give of their time, talents, and energy to enrich their local communities and our State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Guy Henry Atchley of Spartanburg County for his remarkable accomplishments in the Boy Scouts of America and salute him upon achieving the celebrated rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Guy Henry Atchley.
