An Eagle Scout is an Eagle Scout is an Eagle Scout.
There are not different levels of Eagle Scout. One may earn more merit badges, and earn a palm or two, but they are still an Eagle Scout.
There is considerable contention for the time of our young adults, with school activities taking more and more time, often running into the evening, band practice, sports practice and games, homework, dating, etc. Churches are offering more youth programs. These guys are often trying to participate in all of these. I am just very proud of any young man that can complete the requirements for Eagle.
If they have the time and desire, they can do more, but if they don't that's OK.
