Jesuit High School celebrated its Eagle Scouts at Convocation on Tuesday (April 19), as Eagle Scout Mike Hahn '80 spoke to the student body about the universal values and achievements of Eagle Scouts.
The rank of Eagle Scout was established more than 100 years ago and is achieved by only 4% of all Boy Scouts after a lengthy process that includes, among other things: the attainment of 21 merit badges; demonstration of the ideals of scouting (such as leadership, loyalty, and helpfulness); and an extensive service project that the Eagle Scout candidate plans, develops, and leads to successful completion.
Eagle Scouts go on to attain professional positions of leadership at unusually high rate, including numerous astronauts (among them the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong), judges (such as U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer), military academy graduates, congressmen, four Nobel laureates, and the 38th U.S. president, Gerald Ford.
Congratulations to Jesuit's Eagle Scouts, and to the many Jesuit students who are close to achieving the Eagle Scout rank. After Convocation, Hahn and Jesuit’s Director of Student Activities, Mike Scicchitano ’01, who also is an Eagle Scout, gathered with 19 Jesuit students who are Eagle Scouts for the photo on the homepage: Tyler Ballehr ’16, John Bencivenga ’16, Rhett Broz ’17, Charles Butler ’16, Thomas Chadwick ’17, Guilson Chua ’19, Will Clewis ’16, Chris Conn ’16, Michael Delano ’17, Joe Edgar ’17, Bo Gwinner ’17, Myles Hahn ’16, John Hentschel ’16, Jack Hermes ’19, Vito Holmes ’16, Jackson Roberson ’16, Chris Merrill ’17, Chris Sutton ’16, and Jeffrey Turn ’16.
