Jeremiah P. of the Buckskin Council proudly displayed his Eagle Scout Award for the first time at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor in early January. However, this new Eagle is certainly no stranger to Scouting’s highest rank. Jeremiah is now the sixth brother to become an Eagle.

Reaching this Scouting achievement takes significant dedication from any boy, so for six siblings to have earned the rank is an astounding family accomplishment. Jeremiah expressed the significance of reaching his new rank to the Herald-Dispatch, explaining he can now join his five brothers at the top Scout level.

“I’m ecstatic because I know this means a lot for me in the future and what I’m going to contribute to society, and it makes me happy to actually go out in the world and use what I learned in Scouting and [how] it affects society,” Jeremiah shared with the Herald-Dispatch.

Elizabeth, the family’s mother, also spoke at the ceremony. She shared her sentiments about the boys’ journeys to Eagle and what she learned along the way. The proud mom described Scouting’s positive impact on her family throughout the years of raising her children.

“This is my last Eagle. I feel very accomplished. It’s like winning the lottery and the Olympics at the same time,” Elizabeth told the Herald-Dispatch.

Be sure to read the article by the the Herald-Dispatch to learn more about these six accomplished Scouters.
