Fort Kent ~ Dustin Roy, a scout from a local Boy Scout troop, is working on becoming an Eagle Scout. According to Kevin Lavoie, Forest Hill Administrator, Roy is completing several needed maintenance projects around the facility. He has been joined by his mother on occasion and a co-scout, Matthew Kelly, who is also working toward his Eagle Scout badge.
An Eagle Scout badge is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America, (BSA). A Scout who attains this rank is called an Eagle Scout or Eagle. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men. Program requirements include earning at least twenty one merit badges and demonstrating Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. The work being accomplished at Forest Hill to meet these requirements ranges from painting, staining various structures and repairing roofing. At completion of projects, an Eagle Scout is presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout.
