The BSA's highest award was originally conceived as the Wolf Scout, as shown in the June 1911 Official Handbook for Boys. The August 1911 version of the handbook changed this to Eagle Scout. The medal illustrated in the handbook was a profile of an eagle in flight, but was changed to the current design before any were issued. In their original conceptions, Life Scout, Star Scout (Life preceded Star until 1924) and Eagle Scout were not ranks, but part of the merit badge system that recognized Scouts who had earned a specified number of merit badges. Eagle Scout was awarded to any First Class Scout who had earned 21 merit badges. Consequently, eight of the first nine Eagle Scouts did not earn the ranks of Life or Star. The first Eagle Scout medal was awarded in 1912 to Arthur Rose Eldred, a 17-year-old member of Troop 1 of Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York. Eldred was notified that he was to be awarded the rank of Eagle Scout in a letter from Chief Scout Executive James West, dated August 21, 1912. The design of the Eagle Scout medal had not been finalized by the National Council, so the medal was not awarded until Labor Day, September 2, 1912. Eldred was the first of three generations of Eagle Scouts; his son and grandson hold the rank as well. Since then, more than two million Scouts have earned the rank. In 1982, 13-year-old Alexander Holsinger, of Normal, Illinois, was recognized as the onemillionth Eagle Scout and Anthony Thomas of Lakeville, Minnesota was the two-millionth in 2009. A total of 2,209,000 Scouts had earned Eagle Scout by the end of 2012; out of 83,486,083 Scouts since 1911; this was just over two percent of the Boy Scouting membership. In 2012, 57,976 Eagle Scout awards were presented, about 7 percent of the 2012 membership.

The Heart of Ohio Council is proud that all five 2013 Silver Beaver honorees are Wood Badge trained. Three are staff, serving on our upcoming course this summer. C4-450-13 is filling up fast with less than 10 slots left. Wood Badge is truly one of Scouting’s mountaintop experiences. It has served as a source of leadership training and inspiration to thousands. It can change your life, affect how you perceive Scouting and give you the tools to better serve our youth. Skills developed from Wood Badge training will help a volunteer leader do a better job in any BSA program or at any level of involvement.

Past Silver Beaver Award Recipients

What’s It Worth? The Eagle Badge. The highest rank a Scout can earn. What is it worth? Well, in dollars and cents it is worth about $7.50. Probably two and a half dollars in silver, twenty fives cents worth of ribbon, and the rest of it in manufacturing and handling cost. But, what is it really worth to you? Think back to the time when you first became a Scout. Remember the Scout skills that you learned for each rank? And the re-dedication to the Scout Oath and Law each time you advanced. Think of the service that you have given to your troop and to other people. Is your Eagle badge worth $7.50? Of course not! Your Eagle badge is priceless. It represents everything that you have learned, everything that you have done to be prepared, to help others, and to help yourself. So now you stand on the peak of the mountain. An Eagle Scout; now look ahead, look sharp. Way out there in the mist is another mountain, and there below is the trail to your future. It may be a long trail, or a short one, but it leads to that mountain far away. As you walk down the trail, and as the years roll by and finally reach the end, we all hope that you can look back on the trail of life and be able and proud to say, “I have done my best.”

Congratulations to the 2012 Eagle Scouts The Scouts gave you a challenge, and you’ve met it faithfully my friend, But it is quite hard to understand, just all it will mean in the end. An Eagle Scout, you’ve reached the top, or have you only just begun? I’m betting that you will not stop, with so much glory to be won. For life holds out a challenge too, A mountain high for you to scale, And with the training Scouts gave you, there’s really no such word as fail. And so as you press on ahead, you’ll find it’s made much work like play, And as the tasks before you spread, they’ll find you ready, so I’ll say. Congratulations Eagle Scout, the world before you now spread, Scouts taught you much what life’s about, prepared you well for what’s ahead.
