When a young boy finishes the five-year gauntlet of leadership and service to become an Eagle Scout, he is on the path to becoming an honorable man. Research proves the Eagle Scout Award plants the seeds of greatness in our boys. Eagle Scouts can be more likely to fulfill successful missions, graduate from college and stay faithful to their religion. Help us in honoring their time and commitment to this noble endeavor.
This year we will celebrate the virtues of Scouting at the Celebration of Eagles Banquet on October 30, 2015 in the Grande Ballroom at Utah Valley University. The purpose of this event is threefold: recognize NESA Outstanding Eagle Scouts, inspire young Scouts to see their potential for the future and help raise funds to support Scouting in the Utah National Parks Council.
At this banquet we will be to recognize a number of notable men from our community with the NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award. These men have made significant local, regional, and statewide career achievements. Additionally, we will invite Scouts, families and friends to attend the banquet. As these Scouts interact with the honorees, we hope they will feel inspired and see the potential they have to become faithful priesthood holders and fathers while enjoying the fulfillment and happiness that comes through the pursuit of a righteous occupation.
We are also searching for connections to potential sponsors and companies who could benefit from marketing within our network of over 90,000 Scouts and their families in central and southern Utah. A financial commitment to Scouting demonstrates strong social responsibility and helps us provide programs to help young people make ethical choices throughout their lives. All proceeds of this event will support quality Scouting programs in the Utah National Parks Council.
