Becoming an Eagle Scout
A study concluded that when compared to scouts and non-scouts, Eagle Scouts exhibit significantly higher levels of health and recreation, connection, service and leadership, environmental stewardship, goal orientation, planning and preparedness and character. It's estimated that between 5% and 6% of all scouts become Eagles.
Earning the highest rank in scouting, Eagle, is far more involved than other ranks. Following are links to web pages about the process, a list of Troop 76 Eagles and other resources.
Please contact the troop's Eagle Advisor, Mr. Bob McCarthy at email@example.com, on how to reach the highest rank in scouting.
