FAIR LAWN, N.J.– "I've learned an abundance of life lessons, and I'm glad I stuck it out," Marc A. Terwilliger of Fair Lawn told the roughly 80 people who attended his Eagle Court of Honor ceremony at Grange Hall on Sunday afternoon.

Terwilliger, 18, earned scouting's highest honor after building and installing a "fountain of youth" at Fair Lawn's Senior Center.

"It's so satisfying," said Terwilliger, who previously volunteered at the center. "There was so much time and effort put into it."

The project took over 90 man hours to complete.

"The impact will be the lasting impression...that the youth in town and specifically Troop 53 took time to consider [the seniors'] well-being," Terwilliger said.

"There's a lot of work, a lot of planning, [and] a lot of coordinating" that goes into an Eagle project, said Troop 53 patron Jack O'Neill. "It's a step towards leadership."

Terwilliger, a 2016 Fair Lawn High School graduate, is the 123rd Eagle Scout in Troop 53 history.

He received checks and plaques from organizations including the Sunrise Rotary, Catholic War Veterans Department of New Jersey and the Gooney Bird Detachment of the Marine Corps League.
