The Eagle                                 

What does it mean to be an Eagle Scout? How does one become an Eagle Scout? Why does it require a project? These are common questions to someone who hasn’t achieved the rank of Eagle. Scouting impacts everyone in different ways. Many are aware Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the Moon and is an Eagle Scout from Black Swamp Area Council. For this month’s featured Eagle Scout, inspiration to soar among the stars is there and he has his path set for future space exploration.
