Letter of Recognition for an Eagle Scout

Mr. Billy Joel.

Good morning. I am one of the adult leaders in Boy Scout Troop 301, Middletown Delaware. One of my jobs is to set up recognition letters and awards to be presented during Eagle Scout Courts of Honor. We have a young man who is having a ceremony on March 12, 2017. I have been in contact with his mother and asked what he is really into. Music was definitely on that list, but I asked to narrow it down to a Genre or artist. You were on the top (I agree). On behalf of the Troop, I am asking if you would not mind sending him some type of letter of recognition that we could present to him during his court of honor. This young man is an outstanding citizen and possess the character that our future so desperately needs. I truly appreciate your time, since I know your are busy. I did not want to divulge his name on this forum for PII purposes, but would be happy to coordinate with me email address below.

I truly appreciate your time. My contact information is:

  • Dear Mr. Billy Joel
    My name is Laureen Perez and my husband Pedro Perez, is the Scoutmaster for Troop 61, within the Boy Scouts of America. I am proud to inform you that our son, Nicholas Perez, who has been a member of Troop 61, in Rockland County NY, for the past four and half years, has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, Scouting’s highest rank, on June 24, 2017.
    Nicholas Project was to build ten miniature wooden altar's for St. Peter's and Mary's Parish. This project will assist all children with varies disabilities such as Autism, ADHD and Tourette syndrome. He built these miniature altars not only to serve as visual aids but they also hold all the altar’s accessories as seen during mass. For example, chalice, cross, candles and bible.
    Nicholas is preparing for his Eagle Court of Honor ceremony. Would you please be so kind as to send this worthy Eagle Scout a letter of congratulations, along with any other items you wish to be presented to him during his Court of Honor? We will see that it is presented to Nicholas as permanent reminder of the importance of his achievement. I am sure that Nicholas will be proud to receive an acknowledgement from you.
    In order that we might compile all of his recognition letters/certificates/items into a special presentation album, we would appreciate it if you would send your correspondence to the above address.
    Thank you very much for taking time from your extremely busy work schedule to help this community and this unit recognize the personal achievement and service of Eagle Scout.

    Yours in Scouting,
    Laureen and Peter Perez

    Dear Mr. Billy Joel
    We just wanted to take a minute of your time to let you know about Cole. He has been a long term fan of yours, He's been playing piano/keyboard since age 5 and has enjoyed including many of your songs in his repertoire including Root Beer Rag and Miami 2017. For Christmas this year his "big" present was a ticket to your February Tampa concert. It's customary in the scouting community to request letters from individuals who have made an impact in the scouts' career. Cole has used his piano talents to play/serve at his church for more than 1.000 hrs of community service to date. In June, he received his Eagle scout rank and will be having his Eagle Scout Recognition Ceremony in August 2018. If you were able to send a note of congratulations acknowledging his commitment to his community, his dedication to music and his achieving the rank of Eagle Scout it would be one of his most treasured possessions. Thank you for your time and your music which has been one of the soundtracks of our family for decades.
