Eagle Scouts were honored at Greenwich Scouting’s annual Eagle Recognition Dinner last year as well as Charles “Chuck” Standard, at center, who was awarded the 5th Malcolm Pray “Friend of Eagles” Award. The 2014 dinner is on Thursday, May 29.

At the Annual Eagle Recognition Dinner on Thursday, May 29, the spotlight will be on Linda McMahon and 18 new Eagle Scouts.

The event, titled Gathering of Eagles, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich. In addition to recognizing the 2014 Class of Eagle Scouts, the event will also honor Ms. McMahon, a Greenwich resident who will be awarded the sixth Malcolm Pray Friend of Eagles Award.

Past recipients of this award include Malcolm Pray, State Sen. Scott Frantz, local publisher Jack Moffly and World War II veteran Lt. Commander Charles “Chuck” Standard.

Superintendent of Schools William McKersie, himself an Eagle Scout, is the guest speaker for the evening. Local Eagle Scouts of all ages are invited to attend the event and reunite to celebrate the accomplishments of the newest Greenwich Eagle Scouts.

Ms. McMahon is the co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and has been widely recognized as one of the country’s top female executives. She is a vocal advocate for small businesses and continues to promote entrepreneurship. She has been acknowledged for her numerous philanthropic contributions, most recently being honored with the Humanitarian Award from Catholic Big Sisters & Big Brothers and the Spirit of Hope Award from Liberation Programs.

“Her work ethic, natural ability to lead and constant service to others make her a terrific role model” for the 2014 Greenwich Eagle Scout Class and a well-deserved recipient of the sixth Malcolm Pray “Friend of Eagles” Award.

The dinner also honors the new Greenwich Eagle Scouts who have reached the upper ranks of the Boy Scouts. They are part of 800 Eagle Scouts who have earned this notable rank through Greenwich Scouting over the last century. To date, there are over two-million Eagle Scouts nationwide. This year’s 2014 class include: Matthew Baptist, Nicholas Baratta, Ian Brown, Kyle Crocco, Robert Graham, Vincent Hackett, JP Hadley, Spencer Helmrich, Zachary James, Sean Keyser, Ovila LeBlanc, Tarmo LeBlanc, Javier Ignacio Moreno Soto, Joseph Peters, Jack Seavey, Jacob Stone, Zachary Weller and Evan Wolf.

Collectively their Eagle Scout service projects benefited a variety of local organizations including Greenwich Land Trust and Neighbor to Neighbor, totaling 2,585 service hours through leadership of 347 volunteers.
