Five Deaf Eagle Scouts
rayezell_2000 posted a topic in Scouting HistoryIn the late 1920s, the Stonewall Jackson Council chartered two Boy Scout troops (Nos. 2 and 10) at the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind in Staunton, Virginia. Containing scouts exclusively that suffered from hearing and sight handicaps, these units soon became top performing troops in the council. Read more of the history of Scouting at the VSDB here.
http://www.theadvertiser.com/story/life/empowerment/2017/09/20/blind-man-gives-blind-triplets-new-shot-life/682584001/ They were in Boy Scouts since they were 12, I wanted them to learn how to build their own support system. My goal has been to empower them to grow. I did not want their success to be based on what I did for them. They never seek exceptions to the rule. These boys have shot rifles by themselves, they drove three-wheelers at the Jersey Shore on the dunes. I just want them to be the best people they can be. True character building.
