NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award

The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award was created to recognize notable Eagle Scouts who had either performed distinguished service at the local, state, or regional level or who were known nationally, but had not yet met the 25-year tenure as an Eagle for the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. Often, worthy candidates for the NOESA have inspired others through their actions and have devoted a lifetime to their profession, avocation, community, and beliefs, at great sacrifice to themselves and their families.

Do you know an Eagle Scout deserving of this honor. The Council is accepting nominations now through the end of August.
