In a ceremony filled with tradition, Boy Scout Troop 188 Leader Rick Piewitz and Boy Scout representatives honored Justin and officially recognized his achievement of Eagle Scout.
The Eagle Scout honor is the ultimate achievement for Boy Scouts, and it takes years of dedication, hard work and commitment.
“Justin is the epitome of what a Boy Scout is and what we stand for,” said Piewitz. “It has been my privilege to have had Justin in my troop and watch him develop into the leader he is today.
I cannot say enough of what this accomplishment means and what it took for Justin to get here.”
Justin’s Eagle Scout project is the large sign on the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 77 just north of Woodsboro, which greets travelers.
This sign took a lot of planning, hard work and support. It will remain for many years and is a constant reminder of the contributions Boy Scouts make to our communities.
Those who know Justin are well aware that he is a very humble young man.
Justin would rather let his actions speak for him, but he was quick to thank those who have helped him along the way.
“My mom and dad (Henry and Ann Fierova) have always been there for me, and I would not be here today had it not been for their love and guidance,” said Fierova.
“My brother (Josh, also an Eagle Scout) and sister (Kasie) have always been supportive of me, and I cannot thank them enough.”
“Mr. Piewitz has been my Scout Master for many years, and he has taught me so much. My fellow Scouts have allowed me to lead them but learn from them as well.”
“I also want to thank everyone in our community who have helped me throughout my life. “
Justin, a 2014 graduate of Woodsboro High School, will now attend college and remain involved with the Boy Scouts as well as his family’s involvement with our community.
