If you know the scouting program, and if you are a adult leader, than you would
advise that scouts/parents to slow down and enjoy the scouting journey. I truely
do not bdelieve a scout at 12,13,14 or even 15 is worthly of wearing the Eagle
rank. It is sad to read in this articale that Jason & Aaron are not envolved
with scouting anymore. The became Eagles, and got out? What examples are they
teaching their fellow scouts, theres Venturing til they are 21, Become a Leader!
With all the changes in 2013, Boy Scouting is still a great program, it teaches
every day life skills- So much more than than that yelling coach is teaching
from the side lines... Get out there and camp, hike, climb, paddle, give
service to others.13 years in Girl Scout,13 years of Boys

Congratulations to these two fine young men. I helped two LDS sons of Helen
Hornbuckle achieve all of the Merit Badges offered then when I lived in
Champaign, IL. some years ago. It is rare that two brothers have such success in
This is an incredible family! They are genuinely kind, loving, caring and humble
in every aspect of their lives. We are lucky to call them friends. From humble,
strong, faithful parents come humble, strong and faithful children. This family
has overcome challenges no one will ever know, supported all whose paths they
cross regardless of circumstances and they love all they meet unconditionally.
My heroes include this family in every way - LOVE THEM!!
The Egbert family has been a great scouting family for decades. Congratulations!
I am involved with the hiring process at my place of work. If I ever had a
person apply for a job that put on their resume that they were an eagle scout
and had earned every single merit badge, they would be hired without question.
This accomplishment is such a rare and admirable feat that it places them far
above the rest of their peers. I can not even think of another achievement a
youth could have that even comes close.
God, family, school, scouting, and then school sports (if at all). This
program, despite the efforts of those in the past year trying to tear it down,
stands tall as one of the best programs ever in building character in boys. Way
to go, boys!
george of the jungle, here are the steps to scout advancement: (1) a scout
learns (2) a scout is tested (3) a scout is reviewed (4) a scout is recognized.
The answer to your question is found in how well leaders, merit badge
counselors, and parents covered each of the steps without slighting any of them.
But with that many merit badges earned; they are bound to have learned
SOMETHING,as a careful reading of the article will reveal.
So...how many palms is this then? :)Congrats that is crazy work, way to
Their mom probably helped, but don't forget their dad. My father was the
one that got me interested in scouting, merit badges, and the like. He was the
one supporting me. My mom always too busy to help.
Yes, but do their parents donate to friends of scouting?
Behind every eagle scout stands an organized, goal oriented mother.
So, what did they learn.
Moms deserve credit.
