David Christie recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America. Eagle Scouts are expected to set an example for other Scouts and to become the leaders in life that they have demonstrated themselves to be in Scouting. Since its introduction in 1911, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men Eagle Scouts count among their ranks one former President of the United States, over 40 astronauts, and leaders in the military, business, industry, and government.
Eagle Scout may be earned by a Boy Scout who has been a Life Scout for at least six months, earns a minimum of 21 merit badges, and demonstrates Scout Spirit and leadership in the troop. To be awarded the Eagle Scout rank, he had to plan, develop, and lead a community service project that demonstrated both leadership and a commitment to duty.
David is a member of Boy Scout Troop 167 of Leavenworth, KS.
