Eagle Scout: Mike Sullivan

During the January Emmet County Republican Women's meeting, Michael Sullivan (middle) was honored with a 'State of Michigan Special Tribute' by Rep. Frank Foster (left) and State Sen. Howard Walker (right). The tribute (signed by Gov. Rick Snyder) was given to Mike for achieving Eagle Scout, the Boy Scouts of America highest achievement rank.

For his Eagle Scout project, Mike, who is a student at Petoskey (MI) High School, built shelves for a local food pantry.

Congratulations, young man!

An engaging presentation and vision. Take a listen.
