Eagle Scout Court of Honor held for Michael Funera

HERMITAGE — An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held for Michael Funera, son of Mike and Melinda Funera, Hermitage, on April 6. Michael, 17, is a junior at Hickory High School, Hermitage.

Michael is a member of Boy Scout Troop 7 in Clark and is the troop’s 104th Eagle Scout. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest rank attainable in Boy Scouts, on Dec. 23. To achieve the rank, a Scout must earn at least 21 merit badges and demonstrate Scout spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service and leadership. It also includes an extensive service project in which the Scout plans, organizes, leads and manages.

For his Eagle project and under his leadership, Michael and his fellow Scouts constructed a handicapped-accessible walkway for Clark Trinity United Methodist Church in Clark, connecting their church parking lot to the picnic shelter. This church has graciously donated their facilities to Troop 7 for many years and is the site where Troop 7 meets.

In attendance at his Court of Honor to present him with proclamations were state Rep. Mark Longietti, Mercer County Commissioner Matthew McConnell, and Hermitage Commissioner Maria Koledin, in addition to family, friends, and members of Troop 7. He also received a proclamation from state Sen. Bob Robbins. A reception was held after the Court of Honor to celebrate Michael’s accomplishments.
