An honor



Andrew Riley, a member of Boy Scout Troop 37 and a resident of South Portland, earned the honor of Eagle Scout, the highest rank that the Boy Scouts offer. Only 3 to 4 percent of Boy Scout members ever attain the honor. Riley, 15, achieved the 21 merit badges required to receive the Eagle Scout award. For his final project he constructed an information kiosk at the Libby River Farm Preserve, a Scarborough Land Trust property. A ceremony honoring Riley will take place at 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6 at 5pm at Thornton Heights United Methodist Church in South Portland. Family, friends and community members are welcome to attend.
