Attached are the 12 steps to Eagle. Below are some clarifications to some of the steps from the Tar River District Eagle Board.
The Eagle Board will reconvene on September 7th at Boddie-Noell Enterprises at 6:00 p.m. Scoutmasters please see attached changes that will be applied. Specifically, all scouts will be accompanied by a unit leader from the troop and the change in letters of reference.
TAR RIVER DISTRICT, East Carolina Council, BSA
TO: Tar River District Scoutmasters, Concerned Scouters and Eagle Scout Candidates
FROM: Tar River District Eagle Board
RE: Eagle Board Information dated 1 March 2010
Information for Eagle Scout Candidates is available at the National Council and NESA websites, www.scouting.org and www.nesa.org along with electronic versions of the Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project (“ESLSP”) workbook and the Eagle Scout Rank Application (“ESRA”) (currently, the 2009 printing). We suggest that the candidate download and complete the forms electronically, but they must be printed and manually signed for submission. The District follows the guidelines of the “The 12 Steps from Life to Eagle” (attached herewith) in reviewing proposed projects and completed applications.
The following items, referenced to the appropriate ’12 steps’ are provided for clarification:
2 & 9: The Tar River District Eagle Board meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month, 6 p.m., at Boddie-Noell Enterprises to review and approve all proposed ESLSP workbooks and completed ESRAs. The Eagle candidate must present himself in full Class A Uniform as worn by his Troop (or Crew), with all badges in their proper position. The Candidate should e-mail his attendance plans to tarrivereagle@..., but the order for the Board is generally in the order that the candidates arrive.
2: The time spent on the ESLSP must be sufficient for the Scout to clearly demonstrate leadership skills.
3 & 6 & 7: When the ESRA is completed through both Unit Approvals, it is to be mailed (or hand carried) to the Council Registrar, East Carolina Council BSA, PO Box 1698 , Kinston NC 28503-1698 for certification. The certified copy will be returned to the candidate so he can bring it to the Board.
4: The Eagle Board relies on the approval signatures of the unit leader and committee chair on the ESRA to signify that all requirements have been met.
5: The completed ESLSP workbook (with other project documentation and pictures) must be brought to the Eagle Board, and should not be sent to the Council office. This is the Scout’s record of his Trail to Eagle.
6: Before appearing to the Board, the Eagle candidate will secure letters of reference from at least 3 of the 6 potential references listed under Requirement 2 on the ESRA, excluding parents. These letters will be in envelopes sealed by the writer and signed across the seal, and delivered with the application and project documentation for consideration by the board. The reference letters may or may not be returned to the candidate. Other references may be checked by the Board, at their discretion.
9: A unit leader should accompany all candidates appearing before the Board for Eagle Scout approval. The unit leader may remain in the room, but does not participate in the board of review.
