JAY – The family and friends of Aaron H. Wiggin gathered on Nov. 27 to honor him for achieving Boy Scouts of America’s highest award, Eagle Scout. Wiggin has been a member of Troop 199, chartered to St. Rose of Lima Church, for the past seven years.

To earn the award, Wiggin completed 25 merit badges, served as a leader in the troop and had to complete a major community service project.

Wiggin’s project was to recondition the Kid’s World playground. Under his guidance, more than 500 man-hours were invested. The playground was restained, unsafe equipment was removed and other safety issues were resolved. One hundred and fifty yards of mulch was spread. The project took several weekends to complete.

Wiggin has served in many leadership roles in his troop, including quartermaster, troop guide, patrol leader, instructor, senior patrol leader and junior assistant scoutmaster. He worked this past summer at Camp William Hinds in Raymond.

Most recently he was elected to the position of vice chief in Madockawanda Lodge of the Order of the Arrow Scouting’s Fraternal Honor Society. He is serving his troop as assistant scoutmaster and is a member of Venture Crew 436 in Waterville. He hopes to pursue a computer science program in the near future.

He is the son of Edwina and Tracy Wiggin of Jay.
