Connor Boucher is Troop 29’s newest Eagle

When it came time to choose his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project, Connor Boucher decided to “Let Sleeping Dogs Lie.”

Boy Scout Troop 29’s newest Eagle Scout led a project that benefited the Women’s Humane Society. Inspired by his own dog Kevin, Connor chose the oldest animal welfare organization in the country as the recipient of hammock-style dog beds which were cut, sewn and assembled by his team of volunteers.

Because the fabric used was donated by Alutex, Inc., most of the funds raised for the project were put toward the purchase of food and supplies for the shelter which were donated along with the custom-made dog beds.

Along his Trail to Eagle, Connor served his troop as Patrol Leader and Webmaster. He has attended summer camps with his unit at Ockanickon and Rodney Scout Reservations and traveled with them to Cooperstown, Washington, DC, and the United States Military Academy at West Point. He also enjoyed whitewater trips with his troop on the Lehigh River in the Poconos.

Connor is a member of Order of the Arrow Ajapeu Lodge #2. The son of Chris and Kris Boucher of Newtown, Connor is a junior at Council Rock High School North where he is a candidate for National Honor Society, National Math Honor Society and National Science Honor Society. He recently completed his third year as a member of the school’s Varsity Swim Team.
