Eagle Scout Recognition Event

The annual Eagle Scout Recognition Event is the Laurel Highland Council's largest recognition event of the year. This flagship event honors regional and national-level distinguished individuals and the over 400 Scouts who earn the Eagle Scout award in the Laurel Highlands Council annually. Proceeds of the event benefited the many youth development programs of the Laurel Highlands Council.

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Eagle Scout alumni, Scouters, Scoutmasters, and Cubmasters are all encouraged to attend this special program to recognize the Eagle Scout class and NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award Recipients. Eagle Scouts and their families will not want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to be recognized by accomplished Eagle Scouts. The evening is underwritten with generous sponsorships by many Eagle Scout alumni, charter members, and patrons.

This year's Eagle Scout Recognition Event was held on August 5, 2020 virtually through Zoom.  The Eagle Scout Recognition Event Committee diligently worked to esnure this this was a night to remember and honor our Eagle Scout Class of 2019.
