County boys earn Eagle Scout ranking

VERGENNES — The highest award from the Boy Scouts of America —the rank of Eagle Scout — was awarded to Ethan Sausville of Waltham and Michael Jewett of Vergennes.
These scouts were recognized at an Eagle Court of Honor on June 17. Both are members of Troop 539 of Vergennes. To obtain the rank of Eagle each candidate must earn at least 21 merit badges and successfully complete a community service project.
Sausville’s project involved building and placement of two Little Free Libraries. The libraries were placed outside the Waltham Town Office on Maple Street and outside Addison Central School in Addison. The goal is to increase access to books for all. Anyone can stop by and take, leave or exchange a book. There are many great books for readers of all ages.
Jewett used his welding prowess to construct a cow clipping station donated for use at Addison County Fair and Field Days. The clipping stations are used to prepare the cows in a safe manner for showing.  Having an additional clipping station has aided the success and enjoyment of those showing at the event.
Both Sausville and Jewett graduated from Vergennes Union High School this year. Sausville will be attending University of Maine Orono in the fall.  Jewett will be attending the Advanced Welding Institute in South Burlington.
