Yes sir. Totally worth it. I can't tell you how many jobs I have gotten because of it. And I started at a higher pay rate because of it too.

Got it in like 1992 or so. I planned a landscape for the walking trail along about a mile, researched indiginous trees, got a grant from the city council, consulted with the conservation office about the trees, purchased the trees (about 50-60), dug all the holes for the trees, and planted them. It is pretty cool to go back and see those trees now and they are 30-40 feet tall.

Yeah, Eagle Scout will stay on my resume the rest of my life.

Gives the employer a very quick and effective judge of character.

Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow.

Replanned and mapped out the emergency (fire/earthquake) routes for my church. Including two follow-up drills.

I've never used it on a job application. That was back in 83 or 84? Something like that.

I am an Eagle Scout as well as a Vigil Honor member of OA. I procrastinated -- I fulfilled the final requirement for Eagle on the day before my 18th birthday.

Jeff, I finished my Eagle the day BEFORE my 18th. You're more of a procrastinator than me.

My older brother made Eagle. I didn't make it in time. My twin didn't either. But having the Scouts on a resume helps by itself too. I don't have it on my resume any more IIRC.

I know a couple kids who got it who did not get it fairly.

I don't see how those are different. We're both procrastinators

My board of review was in I believe November 2002.
My project involved restoring a section of a very old cemetary in my hometown.
