Westborough – Westborough Boy Scout Troop 100 awarded the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout to Evan Kowaleski Jan. 12. The ceremony was held at the Evangelical Congregational Church of Westborough, the chartering organization for Troop 100.

Evan crossed over to Boy Scouts in 2007 from Cub Scout Pack 100 of Westborough where he earned the Arrow of Light Award. As a Boy Scout, Evan earned 35 merit badges. He has held important leadership positions for Troop 100, including patrol leader, troop guide, and instructor. Evan was elected to the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society. More than 180,000 members strong, the Order of the Arrow recognizes Scouts who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives.

An active camper on monthly trips in the region as well as national adventure treks, Evan also attended summer camps at Camp Resolute in Bolton. Regional trips included Hemenway State Park and Mount Washington in New Hampshire as well as memorable Merit Trips to Nantucket and Fort Ticonderoga. He also attended MassJam 2008 Camporee on Cape Cod and the West Point Camporee in 2013.

For his Eagle Project, Evan refurbished an entryway, stairwell, and storage room for the local food pantry. Evan and his team of volunteers spent over 80 hours of service to move shelving, prepare work areas, paint floors and walls, and sand, stain and seal the wooden staircase.

Evan is the son of Ed and Maureen Kowaleski of Westborough, and the brother of Sara Kowaleski. After graduation from Westborough High School this year, Evan plans to attend college and major in computer science.
