"Whereas, Michael Caldwell has performed the tasks to work his way to the highest honor bestowed by the Boy Scouts of America. Michael Caldwell has worked to a level achieved by a very select few and has earned the Eagle Award."
"Whereas, the DeKalb County Commission and the DeKalb County Mayor wish to thank Michael Caldwell, his family, other scouts who helped and his leaders for the honors they have brought to themselves and DeKalb County."
"Now, therefore, be it resolved by the DeKalb County Commission that February 28th, 2011 be officially named "Eagle Scout, Michael Caldwell Day."
Be it further resolved that this accomplishment be spread across the records of this meeting and preserved as a lasting part of our appreciation to Eagle Scout Michael Caldwell"
