Groveland scout makes Eagle rank
Max Callahan, Groveland, was honored as the 55th Eagle scout in the Geneseo B.S.A. Troop No. 70, during a recognition ceremony held in the Central Presbyterian Church, on Sunday, Aug. 19.
Son of Lin and Tom Callahan, Max graduated with high honors from Geneseo Central School in June, and has already arrived at the University of Southern California, where he is enrolled in the school of Cinematic Arts, while pursuing a degree in Animation and Visual Effects.
Among his many accomplishments, Max was involved in music, theatre arts, and the swimming and golf teams during high school, as well as having church, scout, and summer camp responsibilities.
For his Eagle Scout project, he planned, organized, and executed the construction of an outdoor amphitheater setting for the Genesee Valley Farm Discovery Center.
Located at the end of Servis Road, Geneseo, this amphitheater will allow for the Discovery Center’s instructional learning and presentations to be made in a natural habitat for both student learning and enjoyment.
Guest speakers during the Eagle ceremony included Bettina DeBell, dramatic arts faculty; Bruce Dehm, President of the Discovery Center; and Rob Antonucci, art teacher.
A reception followed the awarding of the Eagle rank to Max, who presented a “Mentor Pin” to his Mother, in recognition of her positive influence during his years of Scouting.
