Mr. Baird the reminded everyone of the importance and significance of Davis and Kyle's efforts to earn the Eagle Scout rank—a journey that included both young men joining Cub Scouts in 2004, crossing over to Boy Scouts from Pack 29 in 2009, and appearing before the district's Eagle Scout Board of Review panel on May 17, 2016. He then administered the Eagle Scout Promise to the new Eagle Scouts, who were accompanied by more than a half-dozen Eagle Scouts also in attendance. Moms then pinned the Eagle Scout medals and fathers presented Eagle Scout neckerchief slides to the new Eagles. They in turn presented mother and father pins to their parents.
