Westborough – Westborough Boy Scout Troop 100 awarded the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout to Westborough High School junior Nathan Adduci March 21. The ceremony was held at the Evangelical Congregational Church of Westborough, which is the chartering organization for Troop 100. The rank of Eagle, Scouting’s highest rank, is recognized throughout the world as an especially significant achievement.

For his Eagle project, Nathan did clean-up work on trails and preservation land in Westborough, removing large amounts of dilapidated barbed wire fence and other dangerous debris from the property. Nathan successfully recruited, coordinated and supervised a large amount of workers to achieve and exceed his project goals. The beneficiary, the Westborough Community Land Trust, was incredibly happy with the outcome of Nathan’s efforts.

Earning 31 merit badges as a Troop 100 Scout since he joined in 2009, Nathan has served in several leadership positions including den chief, chaplain aide, patrol leader and Venture Patrol leader. In 2012, he became a member of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society. As a leader in the troop, Adduci also attended National Youth Leadership Training in summer 2013.

Nathan has been a very active camper with Troop 100 including many years at Camp Resolute in Bolton for summer camp and on other monthly regional trips. He also attended the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree, the first to be located at The Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. Nathan was part of a Knox Trail Council contingent of five troops that joined the over 40,000 Boy Scouts, Venturers, volunteers and staff.

A member of indoor and outdoor track, Nathan participates in shot put and discus events. Among other activities, Nathan volunteers his time at Vacation Bible School at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Westborough.

Nathan, the son of Richard and Beth Adduci and the sister of Rachel Adduci of Westborough, is interested in pursuing industrial or mechanical engineering in college.
