"Merit Beyond the Badge"

"One hundred years after Arthur Eldred of New York earned the first Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America, researchers with Baylor University's Institute for Studies of Religion and Program on Prosocial Behavior have released findings from a nationwide, scientific survey that demonstrates the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society - from holding leadership positions in their workplace and neighborhood to voting and volunteering to protecting the environment and being prepared for emergencies." read more from this interesting study here.
