Westborough – Scott G. McCullough and Benjamin McMillen Huber, two Boy Scouts from Troop 4 of Westborough/Shrewsbury, were recently honored as Eagle Scouts.

McCullough earned 24 merit badges and held several leadership positions, including instructor, patrol leader and assistant senior patrol leader.

For his Eagle Scout Project, McCullough worked with The Bridge, a human service agency in Westborough, to construct two raised garden beds for the residents to grow fresh vegetables. McCullough and his team of 14 volunteers spent 113 hours removing wood and debris from the site, constructing the gardens and filling them with topsoil for the completion of the project. His project benefits The Bridge by making the gardens more aesthetically pleasing, easier to maintain, and providing the residents with the opportunity to grow and take care of the plants.

He is an accomplished musician on the piano and clarinet, a drum major for the WHS Marching Band, and a member of the WHS Festival Jazz Band, Repertoire Jazz Band, Jazz Combo, Symphonic Band and Pit Orchestra.
