As a Scouting volunteer, you are a living example to your Scouts showing the importance of giving back. Kids notice everything we do and don’t do. Every time you put on your uniform and lead a hike, clean up a river, or collect canned food, you are showing them the importance of serving others- connecting them to their communities.
You are helping kids make a joyful noise.
Nathan, you inspire your leaders and your community with your generous spirit. Because of you, no matter their ability, kids can make a "Joyful Noise" together. Thank you to your family and all the leaders in Troop 326 who helped you on your Eagle journey. You have all made a lasting impression in your community. The 2018 Eagle Scout Project of the Year is well deserved!
To fully understand the impact your Eagle Scout projects have on communities, you need to see to believe. What’s great is your service was multiplied over 50,000 times in 2018. That’s how many new Eagles joined your ranks.
You help Eagles fly!
Whether you are a Cub Scout’s first den leader or sit on an Eagle board of review, when you volunteer you contribute to the overall success of your community. Your dedication develops leaders and builds stronger communities.
You make service fun!
Young people are learning stewardship from you. Every time you get you Scouts outside, you are building their love of nature and their desire to take care of it. You have mastered injecting fun into learning. You find ways to get your Scouts excited about giving back.
"It feels good to help"
It’s the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and Samuel Wynn is spending the morning riding in a truck around a St. Louis neighborhood picking up bags of donated food. Samuel, you are one of thousands of Scouts who helped feed 400,000 people in your community last year through the "Scouting for Food" drive. Because of you, families in need are receiving help.
BECAUSE OF YOU…kids explore their potential.
