Angry Eagle wannabe

Scouts and Scouters:
The story of the young man whos been Life for three years
and at 15 doesn't seem real interested in Eagle sounds
a lot like me. In fact, for me it was a three year break
between Star and Life. Was still active, but not advancing.
About age 16 1/2, I woke up, and decided I had come too far
to not finish Eagle...and I did with two days to spare.
As a leader I also worked with a straight A student who had
time for everyone -BUT- Scouting, until close to 18. Then
he reset his priorities to complete Eagle. In short, please
work -WITH- the kid, spelling out expectations but leaving
the timing up to him. If he want's it, he will come round.
