Troop1 Dover announces Eagle Scouts

Boy Scouts of America Troop1 in Dover are having a special celebration - all their high school seniors from the class of 2020 are Eagle Scouts. The newly-minted Eagle Scouts are listed as follows:

Jack Ringel. As part of his Eagle project, Jack led a series of three classes for Dover seniors with the Dover Council on Aging to assist them the area of computers and the internet. The classes covered computer navigation; tips for using the internet and internet safety; and phones and other devices.

Robert Giasi. Robert's Eagle project resulted in the Dover Sherborn High School garden shed. Bobby started the project by raising funds for the shed’s construction. He then led a team of scouts in building the shed, which will be used by the high school for years to come. Bobby was also one of the youngest Eagle Scouts in the troop to finish his Eagle project at the age of 14. 

Varun Jayanti. Varun’s Eagle project resulted in the placement of 10 educational graphic signs around Hale Reservation in Westwood. These graphics teach visitors about local flora, and due to their sturdy metal and pinewood construction, will remain in Hale for years to come. Varun worked with Hale to develop a new standardized sign format that Hale would be able to use in the future. He worked closely with Hale Reservation for over a year to finalize the pictures and text on the signs, fund-raise, and determine where each sign would be placed. Varun directed scouts for about one week in researching the botanical facts that were presented on the signs and organized scouts for about two weeks while digging and planting the signs into the ground at Hale.

Oliver Fried. Oliver’s Eagle project resulted in a nature path through the woods around Chickering School. Starting from the driveway and snaking through the woods around the school's perimeter, it exits by the swing sets to create a 0.38m long path. Previously, the land in these woods were unused and to a large extent, unknown. However, now the school community has access to this land for recreational and educational purposes. The trail receives constant usage throughout the year, bringing more students closer to nature and promoting awareness for the environment.
