AUGUSTA – On Tuesday, March 21, Seth Townsend of Levant and family visited the State House. During their visit, Seth was recognized for attaining the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 13 as a member of Hampden Boy Scout Troop #41. He is the second-youngest Eagle Scout in all of the Katahdin Region Boy Scout troops.
Eagle Scout is the highest award in Boy Scouting and is given for excellence in skills development, leadership, personal growth and community service. For his Eagle Scout project, Seth improved a trail system for Regional School Unit No. 87 by removing dead trees, placing signs, removing rocks and covering roots, as well as building three benches and three signs.
During his visit, Senator Andre Cushing (R-Penobscot) presented Seth with a Legislative Sentiment, recognizing his accomplishment before the Senate.
“It was an honor to recognize Seth’s accomplishment on the floor of the Senate,” said Sen. Cushing. “Not many Boy Scouts attain the rank of Eagle Scout, and even fewer are able to do so at such a young age. Seth should be incredibly proud of what he’s accomplished through hard work, perseverance and dedication to serving his community.”
Also during his visit, Seth and his family met with Governor Paul LePage to exchange Eagle Scout coins.
