Quillan has been a volunteer at the WLD Ranch in Girard, PA since he was 13 where he saw the need to keep snow and other elements off the four-wheel drive utility vehicle used there.
His Eagle Service Project was to build an outdoor structure to shelter that vehicle at the ranch. This past autumn, he planned every detail, enlisted the help of other boys in the Troop and executed his plan with great maturity and humility that comes with being a good scout.
The date of his Board of Review, and thus the official date he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout was February 6, 2012.
Quillan began as a Cub Scout in 2nd Grade at McKean Elementary, and moved to the Boy Scout Troop in 5th Grade.
He was the troop’s Quartermaster for 2 years, and also served as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and a Den Chief throughout his tenure with the Troop. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow since 2010.
His Court of Honor will be held at 2pm at WLD Ranch on Sunday 4/29/12. All are welcome and any local Eagle Scouts are encouraged to sit in the Eagle’s Nest. Please RSVP to 796-0031.
