When Gus Ferenczy learned his grandfather was an Eagle Scout decades ago in Hungary, he also wanted to earn the highest honor a Boy Scout can achieve.
"I saw the medals on his uniform ... I was really proud of him," the 38-year-old Chesterfield Township man said.
Now, Ferenczy can be proud of himself. He and four other longtime members of special needs Boy Scout Troop 330 in St. Clair Shores each earned the rank of Eagle Scout earlier this month -- years after starting the process. The other Eagle Scouts are David Brown of Grosse Pointe Woods and Artie DeKeyser, 53; Jeff Maci, 41, and Adam Phillips, all of St. Clair Shores. Brown and Phillips are both over 30, but specific ages weren't available.
"When I received the badge and medal, I was happy, very happy and very joyful," said Ferenczy, who had open-heart surgery and two strokes as a child. "I feel good inside. I'm very proud of my four other guys."
