District Eagle Advisors & Advancement
Nationally there were 54,366 Eagle Scout Ranks awarded in 2015, which amounts to 6.57 percent of eligible Scouts completed their path to Eagle. The total is a 4.9 percent increase over last year’s Eagle Scout count (51,820) but 7.3 percent less than the all-time high of 58,659 in 2012.
The National Area Council had 1,420 scouts earn Eagle Scout in 2015. In Bull Run District, we had 56 scouts complete Eagle, having completed 12,415 community service hours through their service projects, the average BR scout recruited 221.70 service hours, estimated at $24.49/hour (National Value of Volunteer Time) for Virginia to be valued at $304,043. The average age of the new Eagle Scouts at the time of their Eagle Board of Review is 17 years old.

Please spread the word, and keep your eyes open for details on some district-level Life-to-Eagle training that will be provided in four times a year on the first Wednesday of March, June, September & December. Check the district online calendar for the location and time of each session. In addition to offering you a chance to ask questions, those sessions will help explain some of the nuances of the ‘new’ Guide to Advancement, and the manner in which NCAC will be implementing that, along with some district-specific stuff as well. Don’t miss it!
Pre-review of Eagle Scout Rank Applications
Council personnel have explained that there are still a surprisingly large number Eagle Scout Rank Applications (ESRAs) that are sent in to Council in ‘less than ideal condition’. Since the staff is so thin there, Council is asking district Eagle Advisers to conduct a preliminary review of the ESRAs – and to initial same – before the unit sends them into Council. This should cut down on the number of ESRAs that need to be modified and re-submitted.
