Eagle Reception

Class of 2023 Eagle Scout recognition event

Earning the rank of Eagle Scout is an important milestone that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life! We invite you to celebrate this accomplishment with your family and Eagle mentor at our council’s Eagle Scout Reception. You will ALWAYS be an Eagle, but you will NEVER have this opportunity again. Take this opportunity to stand with your fellow Eagles, be recognized, and then proudly share with your family as you find your name on the Eagle Wall.

  • Every Scout who earned the rank of Eagle in the past year is invited to be recognized in a special ceremony with an inspirational speech by a fellow Eagle who has used the values learned in Scouting to succeed early in life.
  • You’ll receive a limited edition commemorative challenge coin recognizing your inclusion in our council’s Eagle class.
  • The Eagle reception is also the first chance to see the past year’s Eagle class on the Eagle Wall at the Fickett Center.
