Owen Michael-Zeno Corrigan, 16, son of Melissa and Zeno Corrigan, and brother of Natalie Corrigan, of Oakland, (formally of Sidney) has achieved Boy Scouts highest rank, that of Eagle Scout. He recently received his pin and award at the Eagle Scout Court of Honor that was held at the Snow Pond Center for the Arts, in Sidney, on Saturday, November 5. Corrigan is a member of Troop #401, Sidney.
Corrigan began his scouting journey in the Fall of 2006 as a Tiger cub with Pack #401, Sidney. In the spring of 2011, he earned the Arrow of Light and crossed-over into Troop #401. Corrigan has attended many camp outings with his troop as well as Summer Camp at Camp Roosevelt, in Eddington, and Camp Bomazeen, in Belgrade.
He has held a variety of leadership roles such as Quartermaster, Troop Guide, and Assistant Patrol Leader for the Moose Patrol. Currently, he is the Senior Patrol Leader for Troop #401. He has volunteered over 500 hours in the community. He served meals at the Bread of Life Soup Kitchen, in Augusta, and has helped out with the town of Oakland Oakfest to name a few. Corrigan has earned over 40 merit badges and has achieved the Mile Swim Award and the 50 Mile Canoe Trek Award.
For his Eagle Scout Project, Corrigan made eight garden benches for the James H. Bean School, in Sidney, where he attended school when he was a child. The benches are a meeting place for kids to go to, if they want someone to play with. The benches are also referred to as “Buddy Benches.” Under his direction, the benches were constructed with the help of a couple of his fellow Moose Patrol Scouts and some adults.
Corrigan is also involved in the Venture Crew 401 and a member of the Order of the Arrow. In addition to scouting, Corrigan is a member of the Mid-Maine Dolphin Swim Team, is on the Messalonskee High School Golf, Swim and Track teams, member of the Messalonskee Key Club and recently inducted in the National Honor Society. He works part-time as a lifeguard at the KV YMCA, in Augusta, and during the summer is a Camp Counselor for Camp KV in Readfield. Owen is most known for his friendliness and willingness to help others.
