Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • September 2, 2009 Wyckoff Nate Milbank becomes Eagle Scout at ceremony Nate Milbank of Wyckoff recently became an Eagle Scout at a ceremony held at Bethany Church in Wyckoff. The rank of Eagle is the highest honor a Boy Scout can attain. Milbank began his Scouting career as a Tiger Cub in first grade with fellow Eagle Scouts George Ahlmeyer, Ryan Cascardo, and Chris Dalenberg. He advanced to Cub Scouts with Terry Ahlmeyer as his Cub Scout leader and Melissa Milbank, his mother, as assistant leader. He achieved the Arrow of Light, Cub Scouting’s highest award, in 2002 from Pack 309 in Wyckoff. Milbank then bridged to Wyckoff Troop 77. Milbank has earned several of the Catholic Scouting Awards, including Parvuli Dei and Ad Altare Dei. He has attended Catholic retreat campouts and earned the Order of the Sword of Saint George award. For his Eagle Scout project, Milbank organized an emer- gency evacuation drill at the Eastern Christian Children’s Retreat. He provided volunteers, who took on the roles of the patients who in most cases require special adaptive equipment to move them. The drill was held at night and was attended by police and fire departments from Wyckoff and the surrounding communities. Milbank recently graduated from Ramapo High School. He will be attending Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut this fall. Milbank received a scholarship from Sacred Heart to sing in the university’s choirs. The new Eagle Scout has been a goalie for the New Jersey Daredevils, a team for special kids at South Mountain Arena in West Orange, and most recently for Ramapo High School. The team won the division championship in 2007-08. He has appeared in the high school musicals for the past two years. Currently he is studying Japanese and enjoys anything Anime.
