Diane recently recognized the outstanding achievements of Hakan Justin Taban, a member of Boy Scout Troop 274 in the Orange County Council Pacifica District. Hakan was honored for reaching the rank of Eagle Scout, a fine accomplishment that only 7% of Boy Scouts ever achieve. The Boy Scouts of America includes 2.7 million youth members and 1 million adult volunteers that make our communities better through service, education and a commitment to building leaders for the future.
Hakan’s mentors lauded his precision in his duties, attention to detail, and commitment towards helping those in his community. One of his many accomplishments was the construction of a home for a local school’s turtle, who happened to be 80 years old and weigh several hundred pounds. Congratulations Hakan, and thank you for putting service above self for your community.
