— Thir­teen Boy Scouts re­ceived cer­tifi­cates May 17 from Ce­cil County Coun­cil in recog­ni­tion of earn­ing of the rank of first class.

It is the high­est rank a Boy Scout in the lower ranks of scout­ing can achieve.

“Th­ese scouts worked dili­gently on their ad­vance­ments in or­der to earn the fourth rank on the trail to be­come and Ea­gle Scout,” said Marc Beck­ert, Ce­cil District ad­vance­ment chair­man for the Boy Scouts of Amer­ica.

Beck­ert, who ac­com­pa­nied the scouts to the county county leg­isla­tive meet­ing Tues­day night, said the scouts had to work on out­door, cit­i­zen­ship, first aid and cy­ber safety skills to earn the rank.

“It is the rank that a Scout can qual­ify to be elected into the Or­der of the Ar­row and serve as the se­nior pa­trol leader for his unit,” Beck­ert said.

Re­ceiv­ing cer­tifi­cates are: Wil­liam Wy­man, Troop 131; Ian Estep, Troop 173; An­thony Her­nan­dez, Troop 231; Austin Kuhn, Hunter Kuhn and Fran­cis Sharkey, Troop 302; Wil­liam Ac­qua­viva, Matthew Jor­dan and Con­nor McGee, Troop 336; Michael Met­calf, Troop 367; Ed­ward Dal­rym­ple, Noah Day, and Joshua Dunck­lee, Troop 443.
