Levittown BOE Honors Eagle Scout Jonathan Swift
During the May 2 public meeting of the Levittown Board of Education, the district's trustees recognized Division Avenue High School senior Jonathan Swift, who recently acquired the rank of Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 330.
To receive this status, Jonathan renovated the cafeteria at St. Bernard's Center for Religious Education in Levittown by collecting donations from local establishments, retailers and private donors. He also enlisted the assistance of his troop, friends and family to clean the kitchen, spackle and paint the walls and clean the stainless steel appliances. Following the renovation, Jonathan and Troop 330 prepared a meal for St. Raymond's Church and staff members.
In reflecting upon his Eagle Scout project, Jonathan said, "I understand the importance of giving back to the community and always helping others in need, all thanks to lessons taught to me while striving to become an Eagle Scout."
