DALTON — Quinn T. Jagoe attained the rank of Eagle Scout on Feb. 13, 2018. Eagle Scout is the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America. Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process.
The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Jagoe started his journey in Scouting with Troop 412 in Pasadena, Md when he was in the first grade. He continued Scouting in Pennsylvania upon moving here with his family, but elected to finish this process with his original troop and supporting adult leadership/mentors.
Requirements for Eagle Scout include earning at least 21 merit badges and includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Jagoe’s service project was performed at the Lackawanna Trail High school under the sponsorship of Principal Mark Murphy.
Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout.
Jagoe also earned the Eagle Palms recognition, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership, and merit badge requirements. He joins an elite group of distinguished Eagle Scouts that includes astronaut Neil Armstrong, film director Steven Spielberg, and Walmart founder Sam Walton.
Jagoe, a senior at Lackawanna Trail High School, will attend Wilkes University in the fall.
