Dinniman Recognizes 10 Eagle Scouts from West Chester’s Troop 6
WEST CHESTER (May 22, 2017) – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently recognized 10 members of the Boy Scouts of America’s Troop 6 of West Chester on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
“This an incredible achievement – not only for each of these Scouts individually but also for Troop 6 as a whole to have 10 young men attain scouting’s highest rank at one time,” Dinniman said. “I must also recognize their parents, families, scoutmaster and scout leaders, and all those who supported them on this journey.”
Dinniman congratulated the Scouts and thanked them for their service to the community during their recent visit to his West Chester district office. He also presented each of the Scouts with a special Senate citation in honor of their accomplishments.
“Becoming an Eagle Scout is a lot of work, but it is an achievement you will carry with you for the rest of your life,” he told them.
The Eagle Scouts recognized were as follows:
- Daniel Kamowski
- Emil Mossblad
- Cameron Cox
- Ben Cheng
- Senthil Vel
- Isaac Dickinson
- Gavin Linn
- Jonathan Roth
- Liam Congleton
Dating back to 1910, Troop 6 is one of the oldest Boy Scout Troops in the nation. Originally formed as Troop 1, it was renamed Troop 6 in 1918, when the Chester County Council was chartered.
The first Troop 6 scout to achieve the rank of Eagle was John D. Jacob in 1920. Since then, more than 200 young men have attained the highest rank in scouting.
Since the 1920s, Troop 6 has been chartered by the West Chester Society of Friends, which supplies the troop with facilities, including use of the West Chester Friends School gymnasium, meeting rooms, and storage space for its camping equipment
