Joseph Cincotta, a sophomore at The Cambridge School in Pennington, earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a member of Boy Scout Troop 89.

His Eagle Scout project consisted of building a self-watering irrigation system for the Cambridge School’s learning garden. The system consists of a gutter system that collects water into a rain barrel, delivering the water via underground hoses to soaker hoses in the garden beds.

He also built a tool shed.

The project required 16 volunteers and 174 hours to complete.

Joseph is a member of the Hillsborough High School Marching Band.

He volunteers at Sourland Conservancy planting trees; and participates in beach clean ups and road clean ups in Hillsborough.

Joseph was presented with a proclamation from the Hillsborough Township Committee on March 9.
