Scout with non-verbal autism earns Eagle...

Recommended Posts

A New York scout with non-verbal autism was able to earn his Eagle rank at age 21.  (Exceptions to the usual age 18 limit are sometimes allowed for disabled scouts, and there have been examples of some young men completing their Eagle at age 30 or later.)

He's actually not from New York, but from outside Cleveland, Ohio. It just got picked from the wire by the Daily News.  Still a great story, though.

Right you are!   Thanks for reading more closely than I did.  The location didn't hit me because I was reading it on New York Daily News....still a great story, absolutely!

Cheers!
