Assemblyman Edward Ra (21st Assembly District) recently honored new Eagle Scout Matthew McCarthy for his hard work and community service. McCarthy, a resident of West Hempstead, was honored with the rank of Eagle Scout during an April 20 ceremony at the West Hempstead Library. Ra presented McCarthy with a citation recognizing this special achievement.
“Matthew’s distinction as an Eagle Scout by Troop 240 Theodore Roosevelt Council illustrates the years of hard work, perseverance, and honor he has brought to our community,” said Ra. “This achievement should serve as an inspiration to others as they seek to obtain the Eagle Scout rank and the public honor it carries with it.”
