Tinton Falls officials honor teenager for Eagle Scout achievement


TINTON FALLS – A Tinton Falls resident has been recognized by borough officials for attaining the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

During a recent Borough Council meeting, a proclamation honoring Kevin Terhune for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout was presented to the young man by the municipal government.

Mayor Vito Perillo offered the proclamation and said, “It is an honor and a privilege for me to read this proclamation.”

According to the proclamation, Kevin has been a resident of Tinton Falls for more than 15 years. He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 49, which is based in Eatontown.

For his Eagle Scout project, Kevin refurbished the Overlook by the Falls, 741 Tinton Ave., to allow more individuals to have a better view of the borough’s waterfall.

Kevin improved the overlook and a parking area by installing a stone wall, removing debris, leveling the entrance, clearing overgrowth, spreading wood chips and updating the borough’s community bulletin board.

“Kevin earned his Eagle Scout rank by being a leader in his pack, troop, school and community,” Perillo said. “The highest rank in scouting is an honor which is only bestowed upon 4% of all boys who join the ranks of scouting.

“The principles of citizenship, physical fitness and service provide the cornerstone of scouting,” the mayor continued. “Those few young men who become Eagle Scouts have already demonstrated a long-term dedication to those principles, while cultivating their leadership potential. These young adults are surely the kind of leaders we will need in the future.”
