Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America.  Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men. Becoming an Eagle Scout is no small achievement.  The "Trail to Eagle" is one of persistence, dedication, well-rounded learning experiences by earning 21+ merit badges, active attendance at meetings, outings and camping trips, performing community service, and includes the planning. leading, and managing of an "Eagle Project" before his 18th birthday.  Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership.  "Eagle Scout" stands out on a college application or job resume, and is certainly a proud accomplishment to cherish forever!  

Congratulations to Troop 288 Eagle Scouts!
