Casey Berardi Recognized for Achieving Eagle Scout Designation
Aston resident Casey Berardi was recently presented a proclamation by Aston Commissioner’s President Jim Stigale for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Casey, the son of Charles and Leslie Berardi, is a 2014 graduate of Sun Valley High School and is currently attending Warren Wilson College in North Carolina where he is studying political science and global studies with a minor in Spanish.
For his Eagle Scout project, Casey, a member of Scout Troop #225, planned and organized a community health fair. He communicated with various health organizations and during the fair, which took place in April 2014, information was distributed to attendees by Main Line Health facilities and a blood drive also took place.
As a result, 41 units of blood was collected during the drive, which surpassed Casey’s goal.
Casey began scouting while in the second grade when he joined Pack #292 as a Wolf Cub. He advanced to Webelo Scout , where he earned the prestigious Arrow of Light Award.
Casey crossed over to Boy Scouts with Troop#225 in 2007.
While at Sun Valley, Casey was a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society, as well as the marching and concert bands. He also participated in the drama club, chamber choir, concert choir, and was a committee member for the class of 2014.
At Warren Wilson College, Casey is co-convener of the student caucus, which is the governing body of his school. He also participated in the World Climate March, and the HkonJ March for environmental justice and social equality in the United States.
Scouting has played a vital role in Casey’s life and along with the direction of his parents, helped him to learn the importance of giving back to the community.
Casey has volunteered for Scouting for Food, Adopt a Highway, and Cub Scout Day Camp.
In he future, Casey hopes to become a Pennsylvania State Representative.
“We are all very proud of Casey and his wonderful achievement,” said Commissioner’s President Jim Stigale. “We know he will be very successful in whatever path he chooses.”
