Oops. I had meant for this to go to the list rather than just to
Larry. Thought others might also be interested.

Interesting that you ask about this. Don Izard and I passed a couple
of notes back and forth this morning on this very question. I
suggested that the case makes some very interesting questions for an
Eagle board of review.
The case was in New York State. I forget exactly where. NY State is
experimenting with a requirement for community service before
graduating from high school. This was in a school district where such
an experiement was going on. The scout wanted to count his Eagle
project; the school district said it needed to be a separate project.
I have not heard the final outcome (if there is one yet) of the case.
My own feeling is that the school requirement will be far less than an
Eagle project and it bothers me to see an Eagle Scout balk at
performing community service.
