Eagle Scouts Kieran and Liam Morse Recognized By Legislator Kennedy

January 21, 2018 – On an unseasonably warm January day, Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) took the time to honor two brothers from the Boy Scouts of America Troop 3 in Smithtown. Kieran and Liam Morse achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the most prestigious rank awarded to Boy Scouts. These boys both chose to construct Eagle Scout projects that would honor the men and women who lost their lives during the 911 Terror Attacks. 

Kieran built a patio made of paver stones and four benches around a survivor tree in the back of the 4th precinct, and Liam built a paver stone patio around a survivor tree located at the Police Headquarters in Yaphank. Both memorials are beautiful tributes to those who lost their lives and the resiliency of the people of New York and around the United State.  

 “I am immensely proud of Kieran and Liam for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and for building beautiful tributes,” said Legislator Kennedy. “I think it is important that our youth remember the events that happened on 9/11 and how it has shaped our nation; more than 16 years later, we are rebuilding, much stronger than ever before. The Survivor tree from the 9/11 site represents our resilience as a nation”
