Legislator Anker Congratulates Boy Scout Troop 187’s Newest Eagle Scout

Eagle Scout William Langan

Ridge, NY – On Saturday, March 16th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended an Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony at the Middle Island Presbyterian Church to honor Troop 187’s newest Eagle Scout, William Henry Langan. Legislator Anker was joined by Scoutmaster William Eisele and Assistant Scoutmasters Lou Leon and John Moore.

“The projects by our local scouts are vital assets to our community. Through his hard work, dedication, and commitment to scouting, William has proven himself to be an extraordinary leader,” said Legislator Anker. “I congratulate him and wish him continued success in his future endeavors.”

William’s community service project involved creating a meditation garden in memory of his late uncle, located on the grounds of the Middle Island Presbyterian Church. After the land was cleared, William selected deer tolerant perennial plants and provided a habitat for bees and butterflies. William also oversaw the construction of two benches for the new garden.

Eagle Scout is the highest rank that a scout can receive, and requires the scout to earn 21 merit badges, complete a community service project, and undergo a lengthy review process. For more information about the Boy Scouts of America and the rank of Eagle Scout, please visit
