Madeline Rothstein – Medfield’s first female Eagle Scout
At an Eagle Scout Court of Honor this past Saturday at the UCC, Madeline Rothstein became Troop 10’s, and Medfield”s first female Eagle Scout.
Madeline was administered the Eagle Oath and Charge by her older brother Ben, who is a Troop 10 Assistant Scoutmaster. Ben pinned the Eagle Award on Madeline. Ned Rothstein, Madeline’s father, and the Troop 10 Scoutmaster also participated in the ceremony.
Scouts showing all the ranks in scouting through which Madeline had progressed to get to Eagle.
I was told that the scout on the left in the front holding the Eagle placard and sporting the double sashes, acquired every merit badge that scouting offers.
Nice to see in attendance Rep. Denise Garlick (with a cane due to recovering from knee replacement surgery), our new State Senator, Becca Rausch at her first such Medfield event, and my fellow Select Board member, Eileen Murphy, who said that as only the town’s third female Select Board member that she especially wanted to celebrate the town’s first female Eagle Scout.
