 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, their accomplishments, and to all Eagle Scouts from across the country.

When he was in the fifth grade, in 199?, he graduated from Webelos into Boy Scout Troop 68, along with twelve of his friends.
