What does being an Eagle Scout mean to you?
An opportunity to be the leader for those in search of a goal, and doing so in a way that is needed.

It was a project that brought situations which I had to overcome in order to achieve my goal.
What advice would you give to younger Scouts who aspire to become Eagle Scouts?
Keep your goals in mind each day as it will be the driving force behind your success. Don’t let other opinions sway this, but be sure to listen and learn.
Please share a favorite Scouting memory.
Having the opportunity to grow as an individual with your friends through camping experiences. The most prominent was my troop with 21 to Alaska for two weeks which opened my eyes to other possibilities.
