Faces & Places

The trail to Eagle does not end with attainment of the Eagle Scout rank. It moves forward toward a lifetime of personal and professional Eagle achievements mindful of duty to God, country, and family. In this forum, we seek to celebrate your successes by recognizing worthy achievements of every NESA member.

The purpose of Faces & Places is to showcase the contribution of NESA members to the mission, vision, and delivery of Scouting programs in communities across the country. Examples of newsworthy items include recognitions via military service, academia, civic/professional organizations, religion, Scouting, and of course, Scouting/Eagle families. We can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to! Click here to share your story today!
