Three Sherbornites to become Eagle Scouts

[ccfic caption-text format="plaintext"]

Boy Scouts of America, Troop 1, Sherborn, invites friends and neighbors from Sherborn to attend an Eagle Court of Honor for Keith Thomas Brockway, Hunter Lee Gregory, and Scott Bethel Sirri. These young men have recently completed all the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout and will receive the award at the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony to be held on Sunday, March 12, at 1:30 p.m. at the Pilgrim Church in Sherborn. The rank of Eagle is the highest award in Scouting and is earned by less than 4% of Scouts.

These three scouts have earned at least 21 different merit badges, including thirteen Eagle-required badges. Each scout has also performed many hours of community service and has organized and carried out an Eagle Leadership Service Project for the community with help from fellow scouts in Troop 1.

Keith designed and constructed a custom storage shelving unit for the Dover-Sherborn Middle School students to store their lunches and supplies. He managed the project with the support of scouts, family and friends.

Hunter designed and built a communications and free library center to facilitate the sharing of information for town residents and the exchange of family and children’s books at the recently renovated Sherborn Playground. He worked with the Sherborn Playground Committee in the design concept and managed a team of scouts, family, friends, and committee and community members to complete the project.

Scott restored the Michael Lisnow Memorial Bird Garden behind Pine Hill School. He removed invasive plants, built a bench, installed a sundial, cleaned and replaced bird feeders and replanted the lower garden. He had help from a team of scouts, family, friends, Pine Hill’s CSA, local gardening experts and several local businesses.

In addition, all of these scouts have held numerous leadership positions within the troop and have participated in high-adventure activities.

These are the latest three Eagle Scouts from Sherborn Boy Scout Troop 1, which has been serving the town of Sherborn for over 80 years. The troop is comprised of boys from grades 6 through 12 and is led by an elected Senior Patrol Leader. The troop is supported by many active adult volunteers and is financially self-supporting.

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime to achieve their full potential.

The public is welcomed to join the Scouts at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 12, at Pilgrim Church in Sherborn to congratulate Keith, Hunter and Scott on their outstanding achievement and to thank them for their contributions to the community.
