Featured at the opening of the regular meeting of the Boardman Township Trustees on Monday, Jan. 23 was the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Eagle Scout Travis Filicky, who afterwards was presented a proclamation by township trustees.
Filicky, a junior at Boardman High School, said his service project entailed construction of storage cabinets at West Boulevard Elementary School. Sharing that he has built smaller items in the past, Filicky said the project was the first time he organized and managed an undertaking of such magnitude.
Trustee Chairman Tom Costello presented the proclamation to Filicky, stating that the trustees saluted him for his representation of Boardman Township, Boardman High School, and Boy Scout Troop 60 with his courage, self-reliance, and kindred values.
