Troop 55’s Robert Ciccone recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout.

Ciccone, a junior at Shelton High School, was sworn in at his Court of Honor ceremony held in November. He began his scouting career with Pack 28 as a Tiger Scout and became a boy scout a few years later.

Ciccone has held several positions within the troop, including patrol leader, troop guide, librarian, quartermaster, and Order of Arrow representative. He has earned 47 merit badges — 26 more than required.

His Eagle project consisted of raising funds and recruiting volunteers to dismantle and remove three old tables and build four new picnic tables and benches at Shelton National Little League located at the Stanley & Patricia Kudej Complex.
