Six young men earn rank of Eagle Scout, highest advancement in Scouting

The Sammamish Trails District of Boy Scouts of America is proud to announce our newest Eagle Scouts.  To earn the Eagle rank, a scout must complete a minimum of 21 merit badges demonstrating community service, leadership, and scouting values.  Please join us in congratulating the following scouts in their remarkable achievement in earning the Eagle Scout rank.

About the Eagle Scout rank:  For more than 100 years Eagle Scouts have come to be recognized as responsible young men who have developed the qualities of leadership, self-reliance and fitness. The Eagle Scout rank carries with it a special significance, not only in Scouting, but also in higher education, business, and community serving organizations. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well maintained over the years. Today, less than 6% of all young people who enter Scouting earn the honor of Eagle Scout. To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouting, a Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. In 2011, 426 young men reached the rank of Eagle Scout!
