Five Trails District takes the opportunity to salute the 57 outstanding young men in our district who achieved the rank of Eagle in 2018.
Although it is the goal of every scout, fewer than 4% of the boys who enter Scouting attain the rank of Eagle. The Eagle award is not for the asking -- the requirements are high, and as with all awards, the badge itself is just a symbol. Behind the badge are the priceless lessons learned on the way up. Its wearer, by his achievements, has uncovered the real meaning of Scouting. It follows him for the rest of his life.
We also express our thanks and appreciation to their sponsors and leaders for contributing so generously of their time and interest on behalf of these fine young men.
