FAIR LAWN, N.J.– "I've become a more responsible person from Scouting," Jeremy Fine of Fair Lawn told those who attended his Eagle Court of Honor ceremony at Grange Hall.

"I've gained leadership skills, I've learned wilderness survival skills, I made friends," he said. "...I've gained general experience on how to deal with life choices. I believe scouting has made me a more experience person for the future."

Fine, 18, earned Scouting's highest honor after cleaning up and installing work tables and benches at the American Labor Museum, also known as the Botto House, in Haledon.

Fellow Scout Mitchell Wensell provided inspiration, building herb garden boxes at the Botto House for his Eagle Scout project.

Through that, “I saw what the Botto House was all about,” Fine said. “It was very interesting and they needed some help.”

During a two-day period, Fine and more than a dozen others built and installed the benches.

“It was very fulfilling,” Fine said. “When the final product was done, everyone said it was a great job. Everyone was very thrilled.”

Fine, a 2016 Fair Lawn High School graduate, is the 122nd Eagle Scout in Troop 53's history. He received checks, plaques, and/or certificates of achievement from several organizations, including the Sunrise Rotary, the American Legion, Jewish War Veterans, the Knights of Columbus, and Fair Lawn's Board of Education.

Freeholder Tracy Zur has known Fine since he was a fifth-grader, as the latter was her son's classmate.

"I've got to see Jeremy grow and blossom into the man he is today," she said.
