I missed out on the beginning of this thread, so I'm not sure what the
context of this was. However, there is nothing that would require an
SE to be a Vigil, since any adult can be a visitor at an OA ceremony
with proper permission. I would think most SEs would either already
be Vigils or would soon be selected for Vigil, since they perform a
lot of service to scouting and the community, but if they weren't
elibigle or weren't selected they could still act to oversee the
ceremony (although they might defer to someone else if they wished to
avoid seeing the ceremony before they went through it themselves).
It is not much different than having a National Chief who is a
Brotherhood member (which I understand has happened on several
occasions). It might be a bit inconvenient, and might look a little
odd, but it is not something which is insurmountable.
