The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award was established in 1969 to acknowledge Eagle Scouts who have distinguished themselves on a national level, receiving recognition or eminence within their field and who have a strong record of voluntary service to their community. Only Eagle Scouts who earned the Eagle Scout rank a minimum of 25 years previously are eligible for nomination. The award is granted by the National Eagle Scout Association upon the recommendation of a committee of Distinguished Eagle Scouts. Only 1 out of every 1,000 Eagle Scouts will ever become Distinguished.
On Monday evening, February 9th, at the University of Montana in Missoula, we will recognize Larry Simkins, CEO of the Washington Companies as the first Distinguished Eagle Scout in Montana in over 12 years! You are invited to attend this rare and amazing event. The Governor and Chief Justice of Montana will be making the presentation and we will recognize the 2014 Eagle Scout and Venturing Silver recipients from the Mullan Trail District.
