Lindenwood University recently announced scholarships for Scouts achieving the rank of Eagle. The scholarship is $5,000 per year and renewable for five years. Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America.
There were 55,494 Eagle Scouts in 2017, including 762 in the Greater St. Louis Area Council. The path to Eagle requires Boy Scouts to earn at least 21 merit badges, serve in several troop leadership positions and display leadership by conducting a community service project.
The Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America recently elected Michael Shonrock, Lindenwood University system president, to its executive board of directors.
“Lindenwood University has always been a great partner of the Boy Scouts,” said Ronald Green, Scout executive/CEO of the Greater St. Louis Area Council, BSA. “Dr. Shonrock’s 25-plus years of experience in education will offer us invaluable guidance on how to best serve youth through the scouting program. We look forward to benefiting from his expertise and counsel.”
“I’m looking forward to serving and supporting leadership development for the next generation,” Shonrock said.
