Out of this world Eagle Scout project
From time to time we catch up with our new Eagle Scouts to learn a little more about them. We hope you enjoy our latest interview.
Q+A with Jonathan Deitchman, Troop 168, Worcester, NY
June 27th, 2021

Q1: When did you join BSA?
A: I joined Troop 168 on March 21, 2016.

Q2: What’s your favorite Scouting memory?
A: My favorite Scouting memory is attending the World Brotherhood Camporee, which is held annually, in New York and Canada, on alternating years. During the event, I love to engage in patch trading, as it is fun to do and I make friends with similar interests, from both the U.S. and Canada.

Q3: Are there any other Eagles in your family?
A: Yes, my father, Jay Deitchman, who is the Scoutmaster of Troop 168

Q4: In your own words, tell us about your Eagle project and what it taught you about leadership.
A: For my Eagle Scout Project, I designed and built a realistic Mars Landscape at the Science Discovery Center, on the campus of the State University of New York at Oneonta, for a rover to traverse upon, so that young and old can learn about the wonders of Mars. Working on the project taught me that leadership requires organization, time management, patience, and effective communication with those who I am working with.

Q5: Plans for the future and do they include volunteering for BSA?
I plan to graduate from high school and then attend college, studying something in a STEM related field. Additionally, I plan to continue my involvement with the BSA by serving as a volunteer.
Criminal Background Checks (CBCs)
Did you know that in 2020 the BSA changed the CBC form? Make sure your unit doesn't have any left over old CBC forms, because any CBC form without the "02/2020" on the bottom right will not be excepted. Council HQ has seen a few old CBC forms lately and we want to make sure that everyone is using the right one. When old CBCs are turned in, the registration process stops to wait for the correct CBC form and we don't want anyone having to wait on paperwork to get out and Scout.
