An old-school teenager from the Town of Newburgh is being credited for his hard work in remodeling the lawns and grounds of a local church.
Noah Rein earned an Eagle Scout Award for the project yesterday, the Newburgh Town Board announced. This is considered scouting’s highest honor. On average, only 4% of eligible Boys Scout achieve this rank.
Town of Newburgh Town Clerk Lisa Vance Ayers presented a Certificate of Achievement on behalf of the Town of Newburgh to Rein for his outstanding accomplishment. She congratulated him and his parents for this remarkable achievement. Rein celebrated this outstanding achievement with fellow scouts and supporting family and friends.
For his Eagle Scout Project, Rein designed and spearheaded the construction of an outdoor gathering space that includes four benches, a fire pit, and a nine foot cross on the grounds of the Clintondale Christian Church. This was accomplished by coordinating donations of materials and manpower from the community. He also managed the project from start to finish throughout the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in an outdoor space that will serve the community for decades to come.
Town of Newburgh Supervisor Gil Piaquadio sent his congratulations to the Rein Family and described Noah as “an outstanding young man.”
