Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Scouting program (BSA).  A Scout who attains this rank is called an Eagle Scout or Eagle. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young people, however, nationally, only about 7% achieve it.  

On March 30 we will meet four honorees from Hermosa Beach Troop 860 who have achieved this remarkable achievement.   See more detail below.

The title of Eagle Scout is held for life, thus giving rise to the phrase "Once an Eagle, always an Eagle."To earn this high honor, a Boy Scout must:

• progress through the ranks in the following order: Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and lastly, Eagle.

• earn 21 merit badges, including: First Aid, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the World, Communications, Environmental Science, Personal Fitness, Camping, Family Life, Personal Management, Emergency Preparedness or Lifesaving, Cycling, Hiking, or Swimming.

• serve six months in a troop leadership position.

• plan, develop, and give leadership to a service project for any religious organization or any school or community.

• take part in a Scoutmaster conference.

• successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review.

Hermosa Beach Rotary will meet the Eagles on Tuesday, March 30th, and the meeting will be held via Zoom.  The meeting will start promptly at 12:15 pm.
