SABATTUS — Boy Scout Troop 110 has announced that Ian Bouffard of Wales has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Bouffard is the fourth scout in Troop 110’s history to achieve the award.

He accomplished it by successfully progressing through the ranks from Cub Scouts through Boy Scouts. Along the way he earned the Arrow of Light, the highest award issued in Cub Scouting. He is also a member of the Order of the Arrow, the honor society within Boy Scouts which recognizes scouts for their service to the scouting program.

A major requirement for earning the rank of Eagle Scout is the Eagle Project. Bouffard remodeled the church hall at the Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Sabattus. The hall had fallen into disrepair and was in need of new paint, wall board, lighting and other improvements.

The completed project was well received by the church and presents a much better appearance for functions held in the hall. He chose the project because he has been an active member of this church and wanted to make a positive impact there.

Nationally, less than one percent of all Boy Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.

Bouffard will be formally honored for the achievement at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor, to be held Saturday, June 5, at the Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church hall.
