Kings Park Has Two New Eagle Scouts Thomas McGee & George Gonatas 

Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta Congratulates Kings Park 

Boy Scout Troop 75’s Newest Eagles … Thomas McGee and George Gonatas

(Smithtown, NY)…Suffolk County Legislator Robert Trotta praised Thomas McGee and George Gonatas, whom he coached in the Kings Park Soccer League when they were younger, for achieving the esteemed rank of Eagle Scout. Thomas of Kings Park became Troop 75’s 75th Eagle Scout and George of Fort Salonga was the troop’s 76 Eagle Scout. 

For his Eagle Scout Leadership Project, Thomas supervised other scouts from the troop in the construction of five benches for the Boys Varsity Locker Room at Kings Park High School. George’s Community Leadership Project involved working with his troop members to build a new shotput circle at Kings Park High School. As students at the   school, they hope their projects will encourage more scouts to give back to their schools.

“Becoming an Eagle Shout is an amazing achievement and is something that you have accomplished while still a teenager. It is a recognition that will stay with you for the rest of your lives,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta, who represents the district. “Through your years of scouting you have attained a skill set and leadership qualities that you can apply in college and in your careers to make this a better community. What you have done is very impressive and we all expect great things from you in the future,” added Legislator Trotta.
