Boy Scout, Samuel Cole of Windham has been awarded the highest honor in Boy Scouts, the Eagle Scout rank. Cole celebrated his achievement with a ceremony and reception at Windham Hill United Church on April 28th.
To reach the rank of Eagle Scout, Cole and other scouts must complete at least 21 merit badges and do a community service project which involves fundraising, proposing the idea to the town and BSA council, planning, recruiting helpers and producing a project that benefits the community. With the request of a much-needed structure by the Windham Parks and Recreation Dept. Cole constructed a pavilion at Dundee Park that was completed in November with his fellow Troop members of Troop 51 and several adults and friends.
Cole will be graduating from Windham High School with the class of 2019 in June and then he will be attending Clark University in Worcester, MA in the fall. He is the son of Jennifer and Larry Cole.
His father and brother, Tyler, are also Eagle Scouts.
