LEOMINSTER, MA    Leominster Blue Devils Kevin Vincent earned his Eagle scout award Saturday April 2, 2016 at a ceremony held at St. Leo’s Church on Main Street in Leominster.  Kevin played OL/DL this past season for the hometown team.  As part of his recognition for Eagle scout, Kevin displayed hand made picture frames with past photographs of various LHS Football teams in the home locker room at historic Doyle Field.  The Leominster Blue Devils Football Club was proud to contribute just some of the funds that Kevin needed in order to complete the project.  According to Wikipedia,  Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Boy Scouting program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The designation “Eagle Scout” has a long history since its founding over one hundred years ago. Only a small percentage of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process. The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill. Since its founding, the Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than two million young men.[2]

Requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges. The Eagle scout must demonstrate Scout Spirit, an ideal attitude based upon the Scout Oath and Law, service, and leadership. This includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads, and manages. Eagle Scouts are presented with a medal and a badge that visibly recognizes the accomplishments of the Scout. Additional recognition can be earned through Eagle Palms, awarded for completing additional tenure, leadership, and merit badge requirements.
