ASTORIA, N.Y., December 21, 2020 – Kyle Carlos Rea, 16, of Astoria, NY, has earned the Eagle Scout Award, the highest rank advancement award presented in Boy Scouting/Scouts BSA. A member of Troop 65, chartered by Greater New York Councils, in Astoria, NY, Kyle Rea is one of only six percent of all Scouts who attain the rank of Eagle Scout according to Scoutmaster Kate McCroary Jay.


To earn the rank of Eagle, each scout must attain 21 merit badges as well as demonstrate leadership, including successfully planning and completing a community service project. Kyle Rea’s community service project benefited the parishes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Chapel of Saint Margaret Mary.


With the support and guidance of Msgr. Sean G. Ogle, Kyle planned and ran a successful breast cancer screening drive that provided no-cost breast cancer screening services to medically underserved women in our parish.  BSA Troop 65 partnered with the American-Italian Cancer Foundation to bring the Mammogram Bus to our community back on February 29th, 2020.

A few weeks after the screening day, New York went onto a lockdown aimed at curbing the fast-spreading coronavirus, as the number of cases in New York surged to close to 10,000.

“It is estimated that 300,000 women will be affected by invasive breast cancer this year,” said Kyle.  “Providing easy access to no-cost breast cancer screenings to medically underserved women contribute to a worthy cause.  I am determined to bring this service to the community each year, working as a volunteer for Mt. Carmel and St. Margaret churches.”

As part of his Eagle trail Kyle attended three summer camps at Ten Mile River Scout Camps.
“I was lucky enough to attend field masses offered by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio at Camp Keowa in the summers of 2018 and 2019,” said Kyle.  “In his homilies the Bishop told the story about himself having been a boy scout, inspiring me even more to pursue my Eagle Scout rank.”

Kyle Rea received the Eagle Award at a hybrid Court of Honor, transmitted via Zoom, and attended by his Scoutmaster Kate McCroary Jay and her son First Class Scout Brendan Jay, held on December 16th, 2020, at 7:00 PM, at 12-29 30th Drive, Astoria, NY, 11102.

Kyle Rea is the child of Juan C. Rea and Indira Y. Rea and is in the 11th grade at Regis High School. Kyle is active in the Speech & Debate, the Hearn Society, Club.  He is a member of the Order of the Arrow National Honor Society of the BSA.

For more than 100 years, the programs of the Boy Scouts of America have helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun and adventure in the outdoors – starting in February, 2019 the program called “Boy Scouts” operates under the name “Scouts BSA” with both troops for boys and troops for girls. The New York Greater Councils serve more than 20,000 youth in in 5 boroughs: Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.
