Since 1912, the Eagle Scout rank has represented a milestone of accomplishment—perhaps without equal—that is recognized across the country and even the world. Those who have earned the Eagle Scout rank count it among their most treasured achievements. Eagle Scout is not just an award; it is a state of being. Those who earned it as youth continue to earn it every day as adults. That is why an Eagle Scout IS an Eagle Scout—not was.
Eagle Scout Wall
The names of all SHAC Eagle Scouts are listed on the wall in front of the Cockrell Scout Center (2225 N Loop W, Houston, TX 77008). The prior year's Eagle Class is added to the wall in the late fall.
