Raymond Gerald McAleer, a recent graduate of Hillsborough High School, recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout through Boy Scout Troop 1776.
His project consisted of improving the Ann Van Middlesworth Dog Park by adding two pieces of agility equipment, two leash posts and a marked path to the dog park.
The project took 77 hours to complete with the help of 16 volunteers, according to the proclamation presented to McAleer by the Hillsborough Township Committee on Oct. 13.
McAleer served as assistant senior patrol leader, first aid instructor, troop scribe, trip leader for spelunking, rock climbing, canoeing, the council First Aid Meet, and the Council Klondike competition.
He was also inducted into the Order of the Arrow.
McAleer supported Eden Autism Services and the Knights of Columbus Council 636 as a volunteer.
McAleer is currently studying history at Raritan Valley Community College.
