Troop 26's Eagle Scouts

Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.

Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service and leadership.  This includes and extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads and manages.  Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout.  Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership and merit badge requirements.

The Eagle Scout Award

It’s Scouting’s highest rank and among its most familiar icons.  

Men who have earned it count it among their most treasured possessions.  Those who missed it by a whisker remember exactly which requirement they didn’t complete. 

Americans from
all walks of life know that being an Eagle Scout is a great honor, even if they don’t know just what the badge means.

The award is more than a badge.  It’s a state of being. 

You ARE an Eagle Scout, you never "WERE."




You may have received the badge as a boy, but you earn it every day as a man. 

In the
words of the Eagle Scout Promise, you do your best each day to make your training and example,  your rank and your influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in your troop, in your community, and in your contacts with other people. 

to this you pledge your sacred honor.


National Eagle Scout Association


The purpose of NESA has remained the same: to identify Eagle Scouts and to provide a manpower resource for local councils. The primary objective of local chapters is to guide Eagle Scouts of all ages into service within the local council. All BSA councils have membership enrolled in the National Eagle Scout Association.

NESA is young men searching for dynamic and challenging leadership roles. NESA is older Eagle Scouts who desire using their efforts and influence toward forming the kind of young men America needs for leadership. The objective of NESA is to serve—to serve Eagle Scouts and through them, the entire movement of Scouting.
