Eagle Scout Court of Honor

Our son celebrated his Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Saturday. This is Scouting's highest rank achievement, and only 2% of those in Scouts will achieve it. It was not easy, what with wrestling, tennis and rugby, along with Student Council and staying an honor student.

The Court of Honor ceremony is very formal, attended by various representatives and dignitaries. He received commendations and citations from everyone from the President and Vice President, Senators and Congressmen, the Governor, State Legislature, and the various branches of the U.S. Military.

With State Representative Tim Hennessey

He is bound for Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in Lexington, VA, where he will study Biology. He wants to be a doctor.

We are so very proud of him!

Can't believe it's gone so fast,

What an accomplishment! Congratulations. VMI has an absolutely beautiful campus and of course Lexington is one of our most beautiful towns. One of my relatives went to VMI. You might of heard of him. Robert E. Lee? Of course I'm bragging, but I'm also saying it 'tongue-in-cheek' so please don't think I'm normally a name-dropper. Just proud of my heritage, that's all! Mother is a genealogist so I could tell you the name of every grandparent, aunt, uncle and cousin twice removed. I used to think it was annoying but as I get older I appreciate it more and more. Now I annoy my kids with it.

Anyway, congratulations once again and I do enjoy 'Anne Lake'.

Congratulations to your son, I'm sure it will be a great memory for him. As for VMI, It is a gorgeous school. I go to school about an hour away, and we play them in sports, I'm sure he will just love it there!
