The Eagle Court of Honor Handbook
Welcome to the Eagle Court of Honor Handbook. This is a compilation of resources gathered from many places. You will find herein most of the Eagle Scout Ceremonies Handbook by Dan Demers, and also the Eagle Scout Court Of Honor Scripts FAQ from Fred Rogers. There was a great deal of overlap between these two documents, so it made sense to combine it all, along with other sources, into a new handbook. It Sir Issac Newton that said “If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants.” Well, my sincere thanks to Dan, Fred and the many other people who have contributed to this handbook.
The EAGLE COURT OF HONOR HANDBOOK, by Gary Hendra, the MacScouter, is a compilation of material from many sources, including the following:
