The 2013 Heart Of America Council Eagle Scout Class

The 2013 Heart Of America Council Eagle Scout Class

March 8, 2014

On Sunday, March 2, 2014 the Heart of America Council of the Boy Scouts of America honored the 935 youth members of the 2013 Eagle Scout class during a special reception at Municipal Music Hall in Kansas City.

Nearly 200 Eagles Scouts braved frigid weather and an incoming winter storm to take party in the recognition ceremony.

The Eagle Scout Award is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program. In 2013, 935 young men in the Kansas City Metro area earned Scouting’s highest rank - more than twice the national average. This year’s Eagle Scout class also donated more than 114,000 hours of community service through required Eagle Scout projects.

"Attaining the rank of Eagle Scout is a tremendous accomplishment for a young man. Events like our Eagle Scout Reception allow us the opportunity to showcase our Scouts and how they are making their communities better places to live," Kendrick J.E. Miller, Heart of America Council Scout Executive.

In addition to honoring the 2013 Eagle Scout class, the event also recognized the 1963 and 1988 Eagle Scout classes who are celebrating their 50th and 25th anniversaries.

The Heart of America Council, Boy Scouts of America serves 19 counties in and around the Kansas City metropolitan area and serves over 33,000 young people through more than 1,100 Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews, and Explorer posts.
