Melrose Boy Scout Troop 68
Eagle Scout Hall Of Fame

    The Eagle Scout is the highest rank attainable by a Boy Scout in America. The road which leads toward this rank is long and hard. There may be road blocks and obstacles that try to halt the completion of the rank. Time may run short. But the those who possess strong will and desire will complete the journey and prove they are worthy of the Eagle Rank.
    Melrose Troop 68 has several Scouts who have earned this distinction. This page is dedicated to one of them, his accomplishments, and to all Eagle Scouts from across the country.

Eagle Scout Jeff Hegle

    Jeff Hegle became a Boy Scout when he graduated into the troop from his Webelos Den in May, 1981, and joined the Warriors Patrol. He was quite active in the troop, attended numberous weekend camps and summer camps. He was one of the first Scouts from Melrose to attend Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico when the troop went to Philmont in 1986.
     Jeff earned his Eagle Rank in February, 1988. His Eagle Court of Honor was held on April 10, 1988 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church. It was the first time a Scout had earned the Eagle Rank in Melrose in over twenty years.
