The Morris County Board of Freeholders recently honored six Eagle Scouts who live in Morris Township, Parsippany, Mountain Lakes, Rockaway Township and Hopatcong for ambitious and community-minded projects that helped them attain Boy Scouting’s highest ranking of Eagle Scout.

Local Jared Seal of Hopatcong is a graduate of Hopatcong High School, where he was involved in music band programs, and participated in many music ensembles. He also was very active in karate, earning his black belt.

Jared first joined the Cub Scouts in the fall of 2006 and received his Arrow Light in 2011, joining Boy Scout Troop 191 in Lake Hopatcong.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Jared planted 500 trees for his hometown of Hopatcong. The town had received a grant to buy 500 trees that were to be planted on municipal property, and he agreed to plant them in an area that had been cleared for future development.
