U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05) recently honored new Eagle Scouts in his district with a special recognition reception at his district office in Dallas. Parents and invited guests attended the reception along with the Eagle Scouts.
“Today’s Eagle Scouts are the leaders of tomorrow,” Congressman Hensarling said. “The values, ethics and morality you learn through scouting are critical to you, but they are critical to this nation as well,” Congressman Hensarling told the Eagle Scouts.
Only about four percent of all Boy Scouts achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. “You represent the best of the best as an Eagle Scout.
“My charge to you is that you make sure that achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is not just a milestone or destination in your life. Instead, for your sake and your country’s sake, make sure being an Eagle Scout is a way of life.”
