I can recall one lighter moment at an Eagle Board where one quiet
soft-spoken Scout told us of his desire to become a comedian and
possibly an actor. His parents had told the board he had planned to
become a doctor in an interview prior to the board. You should have seen
the look on Mom's face afterwards when the discrepency was discussed and
she turned him and asked "Is that why you're taking drama this year?"
Both parents seemd glad their son was coming out of his shell.
