My son, Jeremy earned his Eagle Rank on 21 June, and reports to US ARMY Basic Training on 11 Jul 2011. We would like to celebrate this event before he departs Houston and begins the next chapter in his promising future!

Sunday, 10 July 2011 @3pm in the Fellowship hall (entrance & parking-near the playground)

Please RSVP to this Post if you plan on attending.

 

One Hundred Scouts

Of any 100 boys who become Scouts, it must be confessed that 30 will drop out in their first year. Perhaps this may be regarded as a failure, but in later life, all will remember that they had been Scouts and will speak well of the program.

Of the 100, only rarely will one ever appear before a juvenile court judge. Twelve of the 100 will be from families who have no religious affiliation. Through Scouting, these 12 and many of their families will be brought into contact with a church, synagogue, or mosque, and will continue to be active all their lives. Six of the 100 will enter the ministry.

Each of the 100 will learn something from Scouting. Almost all will develop hobbies that will add interest throughout the rest of their lives. Many will serve in the military and in varying degrees profit from their Scout training. At least one will use it to save another person’s life, and many will credit it with saving their own.

Two of the 100 will reach the rank of Eagle, and at least one will later say that he values his Eagle badge above his college degree. Many will find their future vocation through merit badge work and Scouting contacts. Seventeen of the 100 boys will later become Scout Leaders and will give leadership to thousands of additional boys.

Only one in four boys in America will become a Scout, but it is interesting to know that of the leaders of the nation in business, religion, and politics, three of four were Scouts.

Scouts account for twenty-six of the first 29 astronauts, 72 percent of Rhodes Scholars, and 70 percent of the U.S. Naval Academy graduates.

Today, we honor One Scout in a Hundred. We know the things he has done in the past; imagine what he will do in the future. Soar With The Eagles! Once an Eagle ~ Always an Eagle.

Godspeed Jeremy Kelly in all your Adventures.

    Jeremy, as a long-time scout (maybe I was a geek, but I was an Explorer Scout after Boy Scouts), I have the utmost respect for someone with such dedication to reach such a penultimate achievement. You’re in a special class, now go conquer life. Congrats!

    Congrats Jeremy! Eagle Scout is HUGE!! Never was a scout myself but the Eagle Scouts I know are salt of the earth. You’re in good company, man. Good luck in basic, tho I doubt you’ll need it as you’re a Kelly. Prayers for a healthy trip to basic and beyond!

    Although I wasn’t an Eagle, I was a scout so I know the time, commitment and dedication it takes to stay with it. Good job. I will still be out of town (currently in NY) come this weekend, but one from scout to another, “always be prepared!” Good luck and Godspeed.
