At a recent Boy Scout Recognition event, 13 local Maritime District Boy Scouts were honored for earning their Eagle Scout rank during the 2012 year and beginning of 2013 year. Requirements for earning the Eagle Rank include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service and leadership. This includes a service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Eleven of the 13 Scouts honored at the recognition in March have completed all of their Eagle Scout requirements including their Eagle projects. Two of the scouts, Josh Tupou and Vili Tupou have finished their Eagle projects and hope to finish their Eagle Rank requirements this summer.
