Life to eagle Overview


Significance of Eagle 

"The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 1 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1911. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank."

Key Note Regarding Projects Not Permitted at CMS:
Due to overburdensome bureaucracy, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) is not permitted to be an Eagle Project beneficiary.  We realize this may be disappointing as you may see a need and wish to fulfill it.  If you would like to see the process change, reach out to CMS senior administration.  Until CMS projects.
