scouts-l Mail Archive for May of 2000: Eagle Req ?

We have a Scout who earned Star Rank on 12/4/95 and Life Rank on 5/13/96. He
is now being denied Eagle Rank because that time span was 22 days short of
the required six months. He successfully completed his project and all other
requirements prior to his 18th birthday.
Our Troop has been through four Scoutmasters since 1996. Neither the
Scoutmaster nor the two individuals who conducted the Life Board of Review
are associated with the Troop any longer.
I have asked for a waiver since it is obvious this error occurred through no
fault of the Scout not did he profit from the 22 days in any way. He had
four years to complete his Eagle requirements after earning Life.
Any suggestions that might help this young man?
Also, is it mandatory that the earned date and Board of Review date be the
same for a rank such as Life?
