SHOUT OUT


SALUTE OF THE CENTURY On Aug. 21, 1912, Arthur R. Eldred of New York became the first Scout to earn the rank of Eagle. A century later, the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) has high-flying plans to celebrate 100 years of Eagle Scouts. Famed artist Joseph Csatari, Scouting’s successor to Norman Rockwell, has been commissioned to paint a com- memorative work to celebrate the anniversary. Bill Steele, NESA director, says the organization also will offer a DVD of the artwork’s creation. “We left [Csatari] a digital camera. Every time he works on the canvas, he’ll take a photo of it, and we’ll do a fast time-exposure of the painting coming alive,” Steele says. The painting will be unveiled at the 2012 National Annual Meeting in late May, and the DVD will go on sale in August. Steele says the artwork will depict an Eagle Scout who has climbed to a high ledge where a bald eagle soars overhead. What’s more, every Eagle Scout will have a chance to contribute to a commem-


orative book, Eagle Scout Stories, scheduled for publication in August. Members will receive instructions for participating by postcard or e-mail early in the year. And all Scouts who earn the Eagle award during 2012 will have the option to receive a special commemorative rank patch.


Faith-Based Initiative


Chip Turner calls it “the Religious Relationship Committee’s response to Journey to Excellence.” Turner, the national chairman of BSA reli- gious relationships, is talking about Scouting’s recently launched Faith- Based Initiative, an effort to engage more of the faith community to start and sustain units. Already 70 percent of all units are


faith-based, and those units boast sig- nificantly longer retention rates. The heart of the initiative’s


message, Turner says, is that Scouting and faith organizations have four shared needs and interests, some- times called the “4 M’s,” they are: 1 Mission: Both make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and families. 2 Membership: Both need young families to survive. 3 Manpower: Both seek more leader- ship, particularly younger leaders. 4 Money: Both require financial support for ongoing operation. According to Turner, the benefits


are mutually rewarding. “We lift each other’s boats in the process.”
