The burial and celebration of the life of Scout Clifton Braunwalder took place today in Murfreesboro. In honor of his bravery, the Middle Tennessee Council awarded Clifton the Spirit of the Eagle. This award recognizes the contributions of Scouting members who lost their lives in an untimely accident or illness. Clifton was laid to rest in his Scout uniform where the pin featured on this certificate was placed on his uniform. Last night over 200 Scouting members and families attended a vigil for Clifton. Thank you to all who have supported the Braunwalder family and Troop 538.

With 396, the MTC had one of the highest number of Scouts in history achieve the rank of Eagle in 2013! To honor these young men at the annual Eagle Banquet on April 27th, we are looking to recruit community members to serve as Eagle Mentors. As a mentor, you (or someone you know) will support an Eagle Scout by sponsoring the Scout’s attendance at the Eagle Reception. The cost to the mentor is $70 which includes a neckerchief for the Eagle, an event program and light reception food for both the Scout and mentor. For more information on becoming an Eagle Mentor please contact Sonya Street at 615-463-6315 or firstname.lastname@example.org
