What does being an Eagle Scout mean to you?
Being an Eagle Scout mans exemplifying the Scout. It’s an achievement that sticks with you all your life. You can always say, “I am an Eagle Scout.”
How did earning the rank prepare you for the future?
It taught me lessons in leadership, planning, management, and working as a team.
What advice would you give to younger Scouts who aspire to become Eagle Scouts?
Get it done as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you’re 17. It will be a huge weight off your shoulders.
