Eight boys have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout – plus, one Gold Award-winning girl.
Eagle Scout Sal Siriano, a senior, and Dr. Jerry Lordan are all smiles in front of the garden at Fraternite Notre Dame, which will look even better this spring.
Throughout the course of 90 school years, Fenwick High School has seen its fair share of high-achieving scouts pass through its storied doors. Earning the Boy Scouts’ distinction of Eagle Scout or receiving the Girl Scouts’ Gold Award are akin to graduating as a Friar: They are highly significant accomplishments that, quite frankly, may never get removed from someone’s résumé.
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) program. The designation “Eagle Scout” was founded more than 106 years ago. Only 4% of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Since its founding in 1912, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by nearly 2.5 million young men. Fenwick senior Ian Havenaar reports that he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in May 2017. Classmates Ethan Baehrend, Erik Janc,Jacob Marchetti, Sam Patston and Salvatore Siriano also are Eagle Scouts, as are junior Billy Brown and sophomore Aidan Janc.
