Lots of good stuff has been posted in reply to the question of who does
it. I would like to suggest a motive for major involvement of the Troop
and Troop Committee.
There may be no more effective motivater for a Life, Star,...,Tenderfoot
scout to get onto the next requirement for advancement than attending an
Eagle Court of Honor. I doubt a single boy who attends one leaves
without thinking he wants that for himself. Most, naturally, quickly
loose the drive, but few don't work a bit harder for a while. For some
it is the real push they need.
So I suggest that the Troop should see to it that an impressive ceremony
is conducted (including a reception) as a matter of enlightened
self-interest (never mind that the boy deserves it).
