Three Westford Scouts Achieve the Rank of Eagle


WESTFORD — Representative James Arciero recently recognized Vamsi Vetsa (left), Divij Kunaparaju (center) and Carter Purple (right), from Scout Troop 159 of Westford, for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.
To achieve the rank of Eagle, a scout must earn at least 21 merit badges in a number of different areas ranging from government to recreational activities. In addition, Eagle Scout candidates must plan and complete an extensive Eagle Scout project which usually consists of coordinating the materials, manpower, and cooperation of many individuals to achieve the objective of the project.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Vetsa led the construction of a set of outdoor seating for the Cameron Senior Center, which included one bench and two chairs. For his Eagle project, Kunaparaju installed three solar powered phone charging stations at Stony Brook Middle School. For Purple’s Eagle Project, he installed five historical signs at different locations around town, working with the Westford Museum as his beneficiary.
