JAY — Nick Lombardi of Wilton Troop 518 was presented the highest award in Scouting, the Eagle Scout rank, during a ceremony on March 18 at St. Rose of Lima Parish.

Approximately 50 people attended the ceremony, including community leaders, local politicians and a representative for Sen. Susan Collins.

As part of his journey to Eagle, Lombardi had to lead an Eagle Scout project. His effort saw the creation of a handicapped accessible trail, which included putting in several culverts, woodchips and clearing brush. More than 60 hours of work went into the effort.

“I plan to go to the University of Maine at Orono as an accounting major,” Lombardi said. He stated he was appreciative of all those, especially his parents, who helped him achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.
