Manhasset Resident Luca Marchignoli Receives Prestigious Eagle Scout Award

Congratulations to Manhasset resident and Chaminade Junior, Luca Marchignoli on earning his Eagle Scout Award. Achieving the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout is an astounding and remarkable achievement that reflects dedication, leadership, and a commitment to service. The Eagle Scout rank is the highest attainable rank in The Boy Scouts of America organization. Luca demonstrated proficiency in a range of skills, earned various merit badges, completed endless hours of community service, and most importantly completed his very own Eagle Scout Project that has benefited the Manhasset community. The completion of an Eagle Scout Project includes rigorous deadlines, precise planning, fundraising, working with others, and executing the final installment, which in this case was a Peace Pole.
Luca’s Scouting journey began in elementary school as a young, first-grade Cub Scout. His dedication, curiosity and tenacity motivated him to continue his path to Boy Scouts in the fifth-grade. The valuable lessons he obtained through the 11 years he has dedicated to Scouts are ones that have fortified him with reverence, kindness, humility, and endless pertinent life skills. As Luca progressed through the ranks of Scouts, he embarked on various adventures learning the necessary skills for outdoor survival, first aid, and leadership. The Merit Badge System afforded Luca the opportunity to engage in diverse and specialized interests, fostering a well-rounded skill set that has helped to mold the young adult Luca is today.
Luca’s journey began with a Scout Oath; a promise to do his best, do his duty to God and his country, obey the Scout Law, always help other people, and to keep himself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. Luca has demonstrated all these qualities and should be very proud of the citizen he has become. This one oath planted a seed, and through nourishment and dedication, Luca has demonstrated his capability of creating evolving habits to achieve his goals.
Be sure to visit Luca Marchignoli’s Eagle Scout Project located at The Mary Jane Davies Park on Plandome Road on the southeast corner. There you will find Luca’s Peace Pole dedicated to all the community residents as a sign of hope and a sign of peace.
