Westborough Scouts earn Eagle status

Westborough – Ben Hudnal and Alex Perry of Boy Scout Troop 4 have earned Eagle Scout rank.

The highest award that can be earned by members of the Boy Scouts of America, nnly 4 percent of boys who join scouting ever achieve this award. To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a scout must earn 21 merit badges, of which 12 are required and nine are optional. He must hold a position of responsibility within the troop and must complete an Eagle Scout Service Project, which is a benefit to the church, school or community.

As Hudnal's Eagle Project, he directed the creation of a safer access to the entrance of the Holy Trinity located in Marlborough by replacing the existing walkway with brushed concrete and constructing a concrete wheelchair ramp.

He and his volunteers gave 167 hours of their time to complete this project. He is the son of Mike and June Hudnall.

As Perry's Eagle Project, he directed his team of volunteers in the construction and relocation of a portion of the Charm Bracelet Train that is currently located on the Sawink Farm in Westborough. The existing trail has been overtaken by a stream and is consistently wet, making use difficult.

Over 200 volunteer hours were donated to the Town of Westborough for this Eagle Project. Alex will be attending Keene State College in the fall. He is the son of Dana and Mary Perry.
