What does being an Eagle Scout mean to you?
It means to me that an Eagle Scout is willing to help out their community and others in any way they see fit and they do it cheerfully.
How did earning the rank prepare you for the future?
Earning this rank has prepared me for the future by showing and teaching me to be responsible and how to be a good leader.
What advice would you give to younger Scouts who aspire to become Eagle Scouts?
I would advise younger Scouts not to wait until the last minute to do their project, get it done early.
Please share a favorite Scouting memory.
My favorite Scouting memory is going to Philmont and experiencing all the wilderness and wildlife.
