Paul Maschhoff, who graduated from Wakefield High School last weekend, was honored at an Eagle Court of Honor held on Memorial Day for having attained Boy Scout's highest rank, Eagle Scout. The ceremony was held at First Parish Congregational Church, the which sponsors Wakefield's only Boy Scout Troop. Starting as a Cub Scout in 1st grade, Paul has been active throughout his time in Scouting, and participated in many service projects, camping trips and fun activities. In addition to having earned 27 merit badges, Paul had hiked at least 87 miles and camped at least 71 nights with Troop 701, and biked over 150 miles. He held several leadership positions, including senior patrol leader, webmaster, quartermaster, and historian. Paul attended wilderness first aid training and acted as patrol medic on the troop's summer 2010 trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, the Boy Scouts of America's largest national high-adventure base, which has hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky trails. For his Eagle project, he promoted and created new carpooling groups for students in the Wakefield Public Schools.
