“I had an opportunity,” he said. “I wanted to see how much I could do.”
A junior at Andover High School, Doskocil aspires to a career in engineering and computer coding.
The son of Douglas Doskocil and Cynthia Weeks, Doskocil truly comes from a Scouting family. His father earned Eagle status in 1979 and is the Scoutmaster of Troop 77, which meets at West Parish Church. Brother Sam is also an Eagle.
Fellow Eagle Scout Matthew Byrne, also of Troop 77, is a freshman at Bryant University in Rhode Island, where he is studying international business. Byrne and other Scouts working under his leadership built two kiosks for Indian Ridge Reservation in town to complete his service project.
His toughest merit badge? Cooking, he said. Byrne, son of Frank and Susan Byrne, had to cook over an open fire. “I got a couple of burns,” he said.
All of Andover’s other recent Eagle Scouts also completed worthwhile service projects and excelled in their Scouting experience to join the ranks of Scouting’s elite.
