Deer Park Student Travis Michalek Receives Eagle Scout Honors


During a special ceremony before his family, friends, fellow troop members, advisors and local dignitaries on March 11, Deer Park resident and student Travis Michalek received his Eagle Scout award, the highest recognized achievement bestowed by the Boy Scouts of America to its members. Mr. Michalek’s Court of Honor was held at the Deer Park Firehouse where he received many accolades for his distinction, including a Proclamation presented to him from Suffolk County Legislator Tom Donnelly (D-Huntington Station).

Mr. Michalek’s Eagle Scout project involved building two cedar benches and installing new seating at the May Moore Elementary School playground.  In addition to organizing and completing his own project, Mr. Michalek has assisted his fellow Boy Scouts in Troop 86 in completing their Eagle Scout projects. He also has an impressive community service record, including volunteering at the Deer Park Lion’s Club Pancake Breakfast, the Veteran’s Parade in New York City, the Deer Park Fire Department September 11th Remembrance Ceremony, the annual Ray Downey Father’s Day Run and the Town of Babylon POW-MIA Vigil. 

“Travis Michalek has demonstrated his dedication to community, not just in completing his Eagle Scout project, but also through leadership, service and character,” Legislator Donnelly said.  “I am proud to recognize him for his outstanding contributions and wish him much continued success.”
