It is your responsibility as Scoutmaster to either sign off the 2nd
requirement section of the Eagle list or not. To often at the district
level we receive applications with all the proper signatures and then
verbally hear from the Scoutmaster or Troop Committee that the scout is not
Eagle material, but they did not want to be the "bad guy." As troop leaders
you know the scout much better than his prospective board of review. By
signing off scouts in areas you know first hand that they are deficient you
are hurting the program as a whole. If the scout wishes to appeal your
decision he can by submitting his paper work and submitt to an interview by
the district advancement committee.
