About 18 years ago a group of boys from The Lovett School in Vinings, GA joined Cub Scout Pack 304 in the first grade. The Scouts stuck together through Tiger Cubs. They became close friends over the course of many campouts, Den Meetings and other activities.
When they reached Sixth Grade and the transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scout Troop 304 many of their friends lost interest in Scouting. The remaining twelve however found a new purpose. They were going to work together to become twelve Lovett Eagle Scouts. And they would be on of the largest groups in the Atlanta Area Council’s history to reach the honored rank together.
Though they sometimes had other activities taking up their time they kept on going on camp outs. Though other interests sometimes overshadowed their Merit Badges, they all received more than the required 21. And in 2015, the twelve Lovett Eagle Scouts celebrated together at a joint Court of Honor where they were each awarded the medal they’d worked over a decade to earn.
The Eagle Scouts had a few words of wisdom for those Scouts still working their way down the Trail to Eagle when they sat down for a recent interview.
All twelve of the 2015 Lovett Eagle Scouts are preparing to head off to college in the Fall of 2016.
