East Hampton Eagle Scout
Jason Anthony Ganga, 17, of East Hampton, achieved Scouting's highest honor, the Eagle Scout Rank on May 16. Jason has been a member of the Boy Scouts for 11 years and is one of just two percent of the Scouts who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.
Jason and his troop cleared a driveway at Fort House Pond in Montauk to allow for emergency vehicle access. They built three picnic tables and a new stone barbecue for families and classes visiting the soon-to-be-built nature center there.
Jason will graduate from East Hampton High School this June and will attend either Johnson and Wales University or the Culinary Institute of America in order to pursue a degree in culinary arts.
