MARLBOROUGH – Local Boy Scouts Matthew Black and Brian O’Leary recently celebrated their promotion to the rank of Eagle Scout. 

The Eagle Scout rank is the highest honor a Boy Scout can attain. Scouts earn their rank through the combination of years of dedication to scouting which culminates in a service project to their community.

Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant offered special recognition to Black and O’Leary earlier this month when he presented them with two official city proclamations.

“Mayor Vigeant would like to congratulate both scouts on their promotion and also thank them for their respective Eagle Scout projects which benefited the city greatly,” read a statement on the official mayoral Facebook page.

Both Black and O’Leary have given back to the community over their years in scouting, with O’Leary specifically helping with work on Marlborough’s Panther Trail in 2019 according to the Main Street Journal. 

The trail, which links into the larger Boroughs Loop Trail project, relied on volunteers for much of its early construction. O’Leary specifically helped with work on a section between Bigelow Street and Berlin Road, taking the baton from a number of other Boy Scouts lending a hand for other sections of the project.
