Nassau County Police Congratulates Eagle Scout James Kaminski

Achieving the highest rank in scouting, takes perseverance and dedication. 18-year-old James Kaminski, member of Boy Scout Troop 240, earned the Eagle Scout status last weekend.

Kaminski chose to revitalize and restore the flagpole outside the St. Thomas School in West Hempstead — the school he had attended for 12 years. He added plants and stepping stones to the garden area around the flagpole, and replaced the rope along which the flag is raised and lowered spending more than 100 hours on the restoration. The purpose of the project, was to improve the aesthetics of the facility and “give back” to the school.

Kaminski started his scouting journey in the first grade as a Tiger Scout. Since then he has been dedicated to the scouts, earning 32 badges and taking on leadership roles whenever possible. It was only natural for him to advance to the Eagle Scout ranking.

Kaminski continues to stay involved in his parish, currently teaching in its Religious Education program and serving as a Eucharist Minister for the church.
