U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling — R-Texas, District 5 — honored Eagle Scouts from East Dallas and Lake Highlands at a special recognition ceremony May 14 at Central Lutheran Church in Old Lake Highlands.

Troop leaders, parents. and invited guests attended the recognition ceremony along with the Eagle Scouts.

“Today’s Eagle Scouts are the leaders of tomorrow,” Hensarling said.  “Receiving my Eagle Scout was one of the proudest moments of my life, and I welcome these young men to the ranks of some of America’s most dedicated servants.”

Only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.

“The values, ethics, and morality you learn through Scouting is critical to you, but it is critical to this nation as well,” Hensarling said in his address to the Eagle Scouts.

“You represent the best of the best as an Eagle Scout. My charge to you is that you make sure that Eagle Scout is not just a milestone or destination in your life.  Instead, for your sake and your country’s sake, make sure Eagle Scout is a way of life.”

The Dallas Eagle Scouts present at Saturday’s ceremony included, from Lake Highlands, Brian Tepera, Jeffery Westerheide, Trent Briscoe, Vincent Zaballa, Steven Cowan of East Dallas, and Logan Lee, Luke Smith, and Andrew Piepenburg, also from Lake Highlands.
