Ways To Honor Your Eagle Scout

Eagle-Scout-Patch.pngThe fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 2 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1912. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.

Eagle Scouts have achieved an outstanding accomplishment and deserve special recognition.  Sometimes it is hard to pinpoint the appropriate recognition that would be truly meaningful. Here are some ways to honor your Eagle Scout:

  • Encourage Eagle Scouts to submit their Eagle Scout project for the Adams Project of the Year Award before the deadline.
  • Encourage Eagle Scouts and their family to attend the Council Recognition Banquet held on February 6, 2016. Attending Eagle Scouts will receive a special recognition from the Texas Southwest Council.
  • Honor the Eagle Scout by purchasing an Eagle Scout Council Shoulder Patch.
  • Honor the Eagle Scout with a James E. West Fellowship Award
  • Conduct a meaningful Eagle Scout Court of Honor.
  • Encourage the Eagle Scout to apply for scholarships available for Eagle Scouts.
