Eagle Scout Competition
Congratulations to our winner, Michael DeSocio!
The Bill of Rights Institute is proud to announce the 2013 Eagle Scout Competition winner, Michael DeSocio. Michael is a senior at Communications High School in New Jersey, and member of Boy Scout Troop 110. He is a member of BSA’s Order of the Arrow where he serves as the Chairman of the Publications Committee of Na Tsi Hi Lodge #71. Michael was also the Crew Leader of a 10-day hiking expedition in 2010, where he was in direct supervision of nine other scouts.
Outside of the Scouts, Michael enjoys music. At his high school, he is the drum major of his marching band, as well as playing trombone in the concert and jazz bands. Michael’s true passion, however, is photography. He has been the photo and media editor of his school newspaper, president of the photo club, and hopes to study photojournalism in college. Michael plans to study at Boston University, for its amazing atmosphere and great opportunities for professional development. Michael has also received many awards for his photography. These include 2nd place in the 2012 “Photo of the Year” contest and 1st place in the 2011 National Pacemaker Award for Student Photojournalism, which are sponsored by the Nation Scholastic Press Association.
The Institute is excited to work with such a talented and passionate young man, and we look forward to Michael’s future success!
Michael’s troop will also receive a $500 prize
