Council-Wide Life to Eagle Guide Released

Third Edition of BRMC Life to Eagle Guide: The Trail to Eagle, Released.
The Blue Ridge Mountains Council Advancement Committee is happy to provide the Third Edition of this Guide, which incorporates my work on Eagle Scout Scholarships and adds information about Eagle Scout Coach training. Many Scouters have approached me recently asking about Eagle Scout Coach training for their Units and I am happy to include a Council expectation that all Scouters who seek to be Eagle Scout Coaches should undergo training consisting of reviewing this Guide and materials on the Council Eagle Scout Website (http://bit.ly/PHKSph).

This Guide remains the most read and utilized document in the Council and provides up-to-date information on the ever-changing Eagle forms and practices. 

For this Edition, I have expanded information on the Sea Scout Quartermaster Rank and new Venturing Summit Award projects. These projects are completed using documents similar to the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook. I believe that a separate Guide for Venturing and Sea Scouts is largely unnecessary given the sameness of the required service project. Scouts pursuing the Quartermaster Rank and Summit Award should especially review Sections Two, Three, Five, and Seven.

I encourage you to distribute this Guide throughout your Districts, the Council, and the country in the hopes that it proves useful. Please contact me directly with any Life to Eagle questions.

Yours in Scouting,
