Eagle Scout | Spotlights

Eagle Scout Spotlight is a weekly blog post highlighting individuals who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Eagles are given a set of prepared questions in writing and they respond to them as they see fit.  Responses may be edited for spelling mistakes, but they are the words and thoughts of each Eagle Scout.

You will find the question asked in bold and the Eagle Scout’s response immediately below.

Do you know of an Eagle Scout that should be spotlighted or have a question you want to ask future spotlights?  Visit our request form to share.
