Welcome! It was just February 1st, 2019 when female youth were invited to join Scouts BSA, the new name of the Boy Scout program for youth ages 11-17. Today, we are excited to announce the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts in Longhorn Council! These amazing youth have worked nonstop for the past two years despite the numerous challenges they were presented. Their perseverance and dedication have led them to achieve the highest award for youth in Scouts BSA: the Eagle Scout award.
Please join us online (right here!) February 5th, 2021 at 7pm. We will livestream a celebration for this historic moment!
You are invited to attend our virtual celebration of these extraordinary young women as they become the first females in history to earn the Eagle Scout award. We are broadcasting the celebration live at 7pm, February 5th.
About the Eagle Scout Award
Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Scouts BSA program of the Boy Scouts of America. Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned this rank after a lengthy review process. The Eagle Scout rank has been earned by over 2.5 million youth.
To earn the Eagle Scout rank, the highest advancement rank in Scouts BSA, a Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service, and outdoor skills. Although many options are available to demonstrate proficiency in these areas, a number of specific skills are required to advance through the ranks—Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle. To advance, a Scout must meet specific requirements ranging from tenure in a unit and leadership positions to the earning of merit badges.

Meet the Eagle Scouts
For my Eagle Project, I donated 75 party boxes to Caprock Elementary school, a Title 1 school, meaning more than 40% of students come from low-income households
I made 70 STEM Kits for VAST, an after-school program for underprivileged kids in elementary school, because I really wanted to instill my love of STEM in these students.
For my Eagle Scout project, I was really into horses. I chose to build a giant tic-tac-toe board so riders could play while on horseback.
My Eagle Scout Project was in the pavilion area to rebuild a fire pit, fix the stairs, removed broken picnic tables, and clean up the area.
My Eagle Scout project is a prayer garden for a private Christian school. Since there was no place to recenter and relax during the day, the prayer garden gives students a place to relax and center themselves.
I’m making blankets for my school’s JV Dance Team that fold into seat cushions. When it gets cold, there is something to sit on.
We built two elements of a low rope COPE course for my high school, which is hoping to become a youth leadership training camp.
For my Eagle Project, we built 2 outdoor music sensory walls and 2 benches for the toddler and preschool playgrounds of Talitha Koum Institute, a therapeutic program for trauma-affected children. We had 26 volunteers who helped complete the project, and we worked a total of 313 hours.
I made 103 blankets for children in foster care in Tarrant County. I was able to double my fundraising goal and I was able to scale it from my original goal of 24 blankets.
My project was repairing a large section of the porch at my church’s college ministry. We fixed the unsteady porch, repainted everything, and cleaned all around.
I refurbished 23 chairs, 3 ten seater tables, and 2 nightstands. All of these pieces of furniture belonged in the houses where the children live.
I’ve always wanted my project to be a garden. I fell in love with my project immediately. I did 40 tire gardens, a compost bin, and a story area. I hope to do even more still.
I built four benches for the Tennis Court. I knew that the tennis courts never had any benches and I didn’t want people to be standing while other people are playing.
We built a Leave No Trace Sign and designed flyers for all of the trailheads. I truly believe in the importance of sustainability and conservation, to educate future generations on the importance of preserving their environment.
I did a food and toiletry drive to benefit the Roanoke Food Pantry. I chose this project so I could meet some of the immediate needs in my community that were, in many cases, exacerbated by the effects of the pandemic.
My project was to remodel the engineering lab at Keller High School. The project included adding casters and cross braces to five of the worktables. I also designed and installed racks for hearing and eye protection, as well as mounted two power strips to make them more accessible when using power tools in the lab.
