Spoke to the participants of the council meeting yesterday 1400H about the relevance of leading the scouts towards Eagle Scout Award or Advancement.
How do we measure success in Scouting?
Are we not supposed to measure success with the number of Scouts that advanced? Because we know that each advancement means Merit Badges earned and as supposed Merit Badges are the passing mark for certain scoutcraft or skill.
Ow, I feel the urgency now to act on the matter as we have started acting on it. We have to do more and fast!
I thank Angelo Manarang for sending me that orange neckerchief. It did well to accent the lavender bottom. That simple display of current day Senior Scout Ranks and Boy Scout Ranks is just the beginning. ESOP GenSan will come up with a better version very soon.
Through the discussion, he told us that he was very keen to assist the local council in reviving its advancement program to be able to inspire scouts and become an Eagle Scout like him. He also started to contact all the Scout Citizens within his area to start establishing the ESOP Chapter.
We are truly glad and proud to see the fruits of his and our brother’s in Gensan’s advocacy. He is a true Agila who acts to promote the Legacy and Honor of being an Eagle Scout of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.
