Christopher J. Holtsnider of Milford was presented with his Eagle Scout Merit Badge by the Boy Scouts of America at a Court of Honor ceremony held at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Church in Milford on March 13. Christopher is the 107th member of Troop 2 Milford to receive the Eagle Badge.

Receipt of the Eagle Scout Merit Badge represents many years of dedicated effort, and the successful completion of a long process that requires demonstration of how people, working together, can truly help mold a young man with a solid sense of leadership, citizenship, and responsibility. The capstone of the Eagle Scout Merit Badge is the Eagle Scout project, where the Scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to a religious institution, school, or community. For his Eagle project, Christopher coordinated the Milford Youth Center's efforts to refurbish a set of World War II-era solid oak desk chairs that had fallen into disrepair. Christopher led a team of volunteers in the repair and restoration 20 historic chairs.

 Taking part in Christopher's Eagle Scout Court of Honor were Scoutmaster Jack Armata, Senior Patrol Leader John Fitzgerald, Ray Hirx of the Knox Trail Council, his brother and Life Scout Stephen Holtsnider, his uncle Joseph Lawler and Life Scout Ian Michelson. Christopher presented a mother's pin to his mother Patricia Holtsnider and a father's pin to his father Timothy Holtsnider, both of Milford.

Christopher recognized and thanked the leaders of Cub Scout Pack 4 of Milford, including his Assistant Den Leader father for making Cub Scouts a fantastic experience for him for four years. Christopher recounted some of his experiences in camping, hiking, and community service over his six years as a member of the Troop.

State Rep. John Fernandes, D. Milford, presented Christopher with a Resolution from the state House of Representative congratulating him for achieving his Eagle Rank. He also received a Letter of Recognition from the Knox Trail Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Christopher has been a member of Troop 2 for six years, during which time he has served the Troop in several capacities, including as Senior Patrol Leader, the highest leadership position that a Scout may attain in his Troop. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, Chippanyonk Lodge #59.

 Christopher will graduate from Milford High School this spring. An honor roll student, he also plays guitar in his history teacher's "Joe B. Band", is a member of the debate team and the mock trial club, and is a three-sport varsity letter athlete.
