The Eagle Scout Award (Taken from the ceremony program)
The Eagle Scout Award is Scouting’s highest rank and among its most familiar icons.  Men who have earned it, count it among their most treasured possessions.  Those who have missed it by a whisker, remember exactly which requirements they didn’t complete.  Americans from all walks of life know that being an Eagle Scout is a great honor, even if they don’t know just what the badge means.
The award is more than a badge.  It is a state of being.  You are an Eagle Scout – never were.  You may have received the badge as a boy, but you earn it every day as a man.  In the words of the Eagle Scout Promise, you do your best every day to make your training an example.  Your rank and your influence count strongly for better Scouting and for better citizenship in your troop, in your community and in your contacts with other people.  To this you pledge your sacred honor.
