Shannon’s Scoutmaster Samantha Remington said, “Before he started his Eagle project his troop in Litchfield disbanded. By the time he transferred to Winthrop troop he had less than two months to find a project and complete it. He never gave up. I was very proud of Aidan because he always finds a way to succeed. That will serve him well in life,” according to the release.

He was one of five Eagle Scouts from Troop 604 to graduate from high school this spring.

He is the son of Patrick and Antionette Shannon of Litchfield.
