THE EAGLE SCOUT LEGACY: Ernest Green
Eagle Scout Ernest Green is featured in today’s Eagle Scout Legacy spotlight from NESA and BSA National.
THE EAGLE SCOUT LEGACY: In 1957, Eagle Scout Ernest Green and eight others made history when they became the first African American students to walk through the halls of Little Rock Central High School. Green credits the lessons learned as an Eagle Scout for helping him become the first Black student to graduate from the high school, saying “Scouting teaches you how to handle challenges and not get completely overwhelmed by them. I think that was an important part of my being able to navigate that year.”
