On August 19th, the Mayor along with the Board of Trustees presented Kildeer resident, Alex Hurrell with a Special Commendation for his outstanding achievement in earning his Eagle Scout rank.  This is the highest rank one can attain as a Scout. There are 4.5 million Boy Scouts and only 3% achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. As part of Alex's community project he collected over 900 toys and stuffed animals and donated them to Advocate Children's Hospital to comfort patients.
