A total of 170 Boy Scouts from areas north of Boston achieved the rank of Eagle Scout during the year 2013 and will be honored at a dinner Friday, February 7, at the Wyndham Andover Hotel in Andover, MA.
The rank of Eagle is the highest in Boy Scouts. To achieve the award, scouts must have obtained the ranks of Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star and Life, earn 21 required merit badges and conceive and supervise an approved multi-faceted service project.
The speaker at the Eagle Dinner will be David Radue, the creator of the Game Design merit badge.
