Two local Boy Scouts received the groups highest honors on Saturday, March 5 and were recognized by the Plainfield Township Board and audience during the Monday, March 7 meeting at Plainfield Township hall. Mackie May and Scott Bradley are now Eagle Scouts, the most prestigious award the Scouts offer. The boys worked on achieving this honor for nearly a decade. Former President Ford was also an Eagle Scout. The young men led the board in the Pledge of Allegiance prior to the regular meeting.
“I couldn’t be more proud of these two young men,” said Plainfield Township Supervisor George Meek. Meek, who is the uncle of Mackie May, said the boys have been working toward this achievement for over nine years. “I think it says a lot for our little township to have not one but two boys achieve this honor.”
