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, 2015 and May 31, 2016, you are invited to be recognized among the 2015/2016 Class of Eagle Scouts. Click here to register for the event.
