The Eagle Project - An Effort in Leadership

  1. 1. THE EAGLE PROJECT - AN EFFORT IN LEADERSHIP Chris Throgmorton
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Christopher Michael Throgmorton is a former Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and a former California Highway Patrol officer of distinction. Away from his job, Christopher “Chris” Michael Throgmorton supports several local charities, a practice instilled in him during his training as an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts of America is a national organization focused on teaching strong values to youth, with an emphasis on outdoor skills and activities. The Boy Scouts of America is over 100 years old and has more than 2 million members, not counting volunteers. One draw of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is its ranking system, a highly organized and structured process.
  3. 3. THE EAGLE PROJECT  The BSA has seven ranks in total, each increasing in difficulty, with only 4 percent of Boy Scout members achieving the highest rank: Eagle. While there are many requirements for this final honor, one of the largest is the Eagle Scout Service Project. This project, also colloquially called the Eagle Project, consists of a volunteer service project that is created and spearheaded by the scout in question. The scout’s project must focus on the health and well- being of the community. Often an in-depth process, the Eagle Scout Service Project is the final step in the leadership training of the BSA before achieving the Eagle Scout rank.
