SCI Congratulates Inaugural Class of Female Eagle Scouts

Sunday was a historic day for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The organization inaugurated the first cohort of nearly 1,000 female Eagle Scouts. BSA was founded in 1910, and the group has been woven into the cultural fabric of America ever since.

In 2018 the Boy Scouts of America started accepting girls as Cub Scouts. A year later, they began permitting older girls were admitted as official Scouts. Over the past three years, more than 14,000 girls nationally have joined the program. Only 6 percent of all scouts ever attain Eagle rank, the program’s highest rank. To attain the rank of Eagle Scout, scouts must attain a minimum of 21 merit badges and organize and complete a large-scale public service project.

Among the first group of female Eagle Scouts are 5 young ladies who are members of the Scouts BSA Reno Troop #55, which is chartered by the Northern Nevada Chapter of Safari Club International.  Congratulations Nora, Erynn, Priyasha, Sophie, and Suzanna!
