Legislator Steven J. Flotteron recognized John James Lawn of Troop 205 of East Islip for earning his Eagle Scout. John demonstrated leadership recently by constructing the radio cabinet at the Town of Islip Animal Shelter, along with benches for the use of employees and guests visiting the shelter. His service project was inspired by the love that he and the entire Lawn family have for animals.
John is a graduate of St. John The Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip and is currently a sophomore at Hofstra University in Uniondale. Through scouting, volunteering has been a way of life for John who has logged in an outstanding 149 Community Service Hours helping other scouts with their Eagle Scout Projects.
