Eagle Scouts

Eagle Scout Honor Roll

Webster's dictionary describes an eagle as a large bird of prey with sharp vision and powerful wings, famous for their strength, size, grace, and keen vision. It is the national emblem for the United States. Though the eagle is found throughout the world, it is never found in abundance; it is always rare and it is always a superb specimen.

In Scouting, the eagle stands for strength of character, and for the knowledge of all phases of Scouting. The eagle represents an understanding of community and nation, and a deep respect for the same. The eagle is a symbol of what a young man has done as well as what that young man will do, and will be, when he grows to manhood. The eagle is a leader. The eagle is respected, both by his peers and by his adult leaders.

The Eagle Scout Award is the highest award available to youth members of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a recognition by the National Court of Honor, presented through the local council and a local court of honor.

It represents many years of dedicated effort, and the successful completion of a long process which started when a young man became a Boy Scout. It is a demonstration of how people, working together, can truly help mold a young man with a solid sense of leadership, citizenship, and responsibility.

We are proud to present the following young men who have achieved Scouting’s highest honor as members of Troop 628

History of the Eagle Rank

In Robert S. S. Baden-Powell’s 1908 book Scouting For Boys, he introduced badges for achievement. The highest available was going to be the Wolf Badge, based on the Silver Wolf bage in Great Britain. It is said that Baden-Powell got the idea of awards from the American naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton, who passed along ideas from his book Red Indian Boy Scouts of America. However, no Wolf badge was ever awarded. Several leaders who reviewed the proof version of the 1911 Handbook for Boys thought that the highest award should recognize the American Eagle. Persistent requests to recognize the American Eagle resulted in the renaming of the highest rank for the United States to Eagle by the time the handbook was published in 1912.
