Shakopee, MN can boast for a year. This small town has produced the American Legion Eagle Scout of the Year in Paul Banwart.
Paul has earned 102 merit badges, completed a plethora of service projects, and excelled in school. read more
Other awards Banwart has received include: Young American
, Presidential Volunteer Service Gold, Congressional Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals.
It's amazing to me when I hear of a scout that accomplishes so much. The scout's family provides immeasurable support for him to have the opportunities to excel and his commitment to take advantage of those opportunities must be very strong.
We all have the same 24 hour days, but some of us squeeze more life out of each hour.
The American Legion has a great program that scoutmasters should mention to scouts entering high school. I spent a week at Boys State
when I was a youth and it was a great experience. I'd recomend you find out more about the program and tell scouts to apply if they have any interest at all in government.
