Board of Education Honors Eagle Scout Normandin
The South Colonie Board of Education honored Colonie Central High School junior Hunter Normandin with a President's Spotlight award Tuesday night for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Normandin became an Eagle Scout on November 22 and was recognized at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor on January 28. He is a member of the Boy Scout Troop 278.
As Normandin advanced in ranks, he began holding leadership positions including Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and Senior Patrol Leader. He lives by the Boy Scout Oath and strives to be a role model to younger Scouts. His helpfulness and willingness to serve was recognized and he was inducted into the Order of the Arrow in June, 2015.
Normandin’s Eagle Scout project was bringing community awareness to the "Stop for School Buses" traffic law. For this project, Hunter partnered with the South Colonie Transportation Department and the Village of Colonie Traffic Committee by staging buses which displayed banners for bus safety. He also organized volunteers to distribute educational door hangers to village residences. He presented his project to the Fire Department chiefs and had reminders about the bus law displayed on all Town of Colonie Fire Department LED signs.
In the future, Normandin would like to continue to be active in the Scouting community by serving in an adult leadership role.
