Tim Gapinski attains Eagle Scout status
Tim Gapinski, a member of La Vernia Boy Scout Troop 118, has earned the Eagle Scout Award.
La Vernia High School senior Tim Gapinski, a member of Boy Scout Troop 118 in La Vernia, has earned the Eagle Scout Award, the highest advancement award the Boy Scouts of America offers to Scouts; approximately only 4 percent of Boy Scouts attain the Eagle rank.
Tim, the son of John and Tami Gapinski, received this commendation during a ceremony held April 23 in the First Baptist Church of La Vernia.
He has distinguished himself through his years in Scouting and through his continued service to God, his country, and other people by following the principles of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. Tim has met community-service needs through volunteering and through his Eagle Scout project, a canned food drive to benefit the Helping Hands Ministry, which meets on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. to distribute donated goods to those in need in the local community.
Tim joins other outstanding American citizens who have attained the Eagle Scout rank, among them former President Gerald R. Ford Jr., astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, cinematographer Steven Spielberg, and William Sessions, the head of the FBI.
Tim’s plans include attending Texas Lutheran University in the fall to study aerospace engineering. After college, he plans to join the armed forces to serve his country.
