Are you suggesting that our standards for Eagle are not high enough?
The Eagle award is about excelling! The standards are already high.
I see no relation between achieving Eagle and having a 2.0 GPA. The
Eagle requirements are far more than "getting by". I would certainly
look at a college graduate whose GPA and work in college equated to the
performance of an Eagle as an outstanding candidate for employment.
