Boy Scout Troop 82 celebrates new Eagle Scout, William Allen

Boy Scout Troop 82, operating out of The First Congregational Church in Fairfield recently celebrated the advancement of their newest Eagle Scouts. Eagle Scout is the highest rank a Boy Scout can achieve. William Allen, a rising senior at Fairfield Ludlowe High School, was awarded Scouting’s highest rank at the Court of Honor held recently, at Wakeman Hall in the First Congregational Church.

In order to achieve the rank of Eagle, each Scout has to earn a minimum of 21 Merit Badges. Will earned 45 merit badges, earning him Bronze and Silver Eagle Palms. He has also shown extensive leadership within his Troop 82 and within his community by planning, developing and completing a community project.  William’s project involved the construction of several raised wooden walkways in hard to reach areas of the Connecticut Audubon property on Burr Street in Fairfield.

With this latest rank advancement, Troop 82’s Eagle Scouts now count 133 since the Troop was founded in 1928.

Troop 82 is a nationally recognized member of Boy Scouts of America (BSA), and has been an active Boy Scout Troop since the 1920’s at The First Church Congregational in Fairfield. Troop 82 believes in learning while having fun. Troop 82 Scouts learn to be better American citizens, to develop the mental and physical skills needed for growth, and to follow a set of Scouting principles which build character and nurture personal values. Troop 82 meets every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at The First Congregational Church on Beach Road in Fairfield and holds an open enrollment policy.
