Al, I have no idea what percentage of our district's lads make Eagle.
I'll go with the wizz-bangs figures at National-I never considered the
number of Eagles in a troop or district as a true indicator of how
successful our program is. But, looking at the last 12 months, out of 13
troops, numbering between 7 & 25 boys, we have had 10 lads advance to
Eagle, one earning a bronze palm. The youngest was 17, the oldest 18 &
two months with a waver.
We are a rural district & appear to have a lot of professional
"Corporals," as we use to say in my army days. That is, boys who reach
1st Class & are not that interested in further advancement. They are in
Scouting for the program & are happy. At every Roundtable I push the
Eagle trail to the SMs, reminding them of the value that rank will prove
to the boys in later life. The 6 LDS troops have produced the majority
of our Eagles, 7 out of the 10. This is primarily due to the fact that
the CO better supports their troops.
Our council also includes Spokane-it is at council-wide events that I
see younger Eagle 13 & 14. Guess city folks don't have to work that many
tractors. Hopes this helps-God Bless.
