Letter of Recommendation

   Eagle Scout Reference Letter


Eagle Scout Board of Review:

It is my privilege to write this letter of recommendation for _____________, who aspires to attain the rank of Eagle Scout.

I have known _____________ since he was a Cub Scout, and over the years have watched him grow into a fine young man who is trustworthy, loyal, courteous, and cheerful. He has an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and is devoted to scouting.

He has advanced steadily over the years, and has earned more than two dozen Merit Badges. _____________ has displayed enviable leadership skills, and parent troop leaders often turn to him to serve as a mentor for younger scouts.

Last year, _____________ planned a service project to enhance a public campground located in a rural area not far from his hometown. Because funding for camp improvements had eroded over the years, the camp sites and facilities were in extreme disrepair. ____________ mobilized a team of scouts, secured donations of supplies from local businesses, and set about rehabilitating the campground. The facility managers had tears in their eyes when they saw the results of his efforts.

_____________ was never so proud as the day he called to tell me he had attained the rank of Life Scout. He lives each day in accordance with the Scout Oath and Law. He is mentally sharp, and his morals are impeccable.

I know that becoming an Eagle Scout is his lifelong dream, and he will truly do the organization proud.

Yours in Scouting,
