Alumni Committee

All friends of Scouting are part of our Alumni Association. We can help you enrich your life through special trips, opportunities, events such as special local Alumni events, supporting college scholarships for exceptional college-bound Eagle Scouts, hosting and attending our council’s annual Eagle Scout Recognition and Hall of Fame dinner and a special brunch for anyone who’s been to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico this summer.

We hope to see you at one of our events!

Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award

In 2009, the National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by a Scout to a religious institution, a school, community, or other entity. The award recognizes the Scout for his Eagle Scout leadership service project, which is part of the requirements for earning the Eagle Scout Award. Each year, local councils select a council-level winner, and from that pool, each region selects a region-level winner. A national winner is then selected from the four regional finalists.
