Boy Scout on a Mission

Boy Scout on a Mission

Congratulations to Brandon Silva '24, whose Eagle Scout Project to manufacture and install news signs at Hilldale Cemetery was recently approved and is on track to be completed in the spring.

Hilldale Cemetery, located in Haverhill and founded in 1859, is 20 acres and includes 4,1816 graves - 474 are the graves of veterans.

Brandon's project will make it easier for people to find their loved one and will honor veterans who are memorialized at the cemetery.

Brandon, who has been a Scout since the age of seven, has achieved the rank of Life Scout and is working to become an Eagle Scout.

His project proposal; which includes costs, logistics and required labor; has been approved by the Eagle Scout board.

Brandon's been a volunteer worker at the Hilldale Cemetery for two years and assists in frequent cleanups.
