What is a great way to honor your Eagle Scout? Middle Tennessee Council has an "Eagle Walk", where you can make your mark and help build the future of Scouting. Along the walk, the name, Troop number and the date the Eagle was earned will be created in the art of brick relief carving. Just as bricks lay a foundation, Eagle Scouts can lay the foundation for future generations of young people to join the fun and adventure of Scouting. Click here to download the “Eagle Walk” order form.
