WESTFORD — The office of Representative James Arciero shared the following press release with WestfordCAT.

State Representative James Arciero recently recognized Gautham Anoop from Troop 195 in 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, Anoop replaced a log bridge with a 16-foot-long footbridge, which covers an intermittent stream on the Kloppenburg Trail in Westford. Additional tasks were raking the path of the trail, adding trail markers, and installing a trail map and a hikers’ post at the trailhead.
