The Atlanta Area Council is excited to recognize the 2016/2017 Eagle Scout Class at the Council Eagle Scout Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at the Rialto Center for the Arts.
The Council is proud to honor Rhett L. Turner as the Eagle Scout Class Honoree. Rhett Turner is president of Red Sky Productions, a state of the art international film production company focusing on documentary films for global television audiences and private corporations.
This event is provided free of charge to our Eagle Scouts and their families due to the generosity of our sponsors.
What it means to be an Eagle Scout
The honor and distinction of the Eagle Scout rank can only be achieved through hard work and commitment to the ideals of the Scouting movement. The achievement is so rare, that only 5% of Scouts earn the Eagle rank. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than 2 million young men. Once a scout advances to Eagle Scout, he will remain an Eagle for the rest of his life regardless of age or participation in Scouting. Eagle Scouts are expected to set an example for other Scouts and to become the leaders in life that they have demonstrated themselves to be in Scouting. As such, they are disproportionately represented in the military, service academy graduates, in higher education and academia, major professions, the clergy, business and politics.
If you attain the rank of Eagle between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017, you are invited to be recognized among the 2016/2017 Class of Eagle Scouts.
