Mount Vernon Scout Certificates in 2021
The 2021 Mount Vernon Chapter Eagle Scout Award
Each year, the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution conducts the SAR's Arthur M. and Berdena King Eagle Scout Contest.
The competition is open to all Eagle Scouts who are currently registered in an active unit and have not reached their 19th birthday during the year of application.
Competition begins at the local Chapter level and proceeds to the state and national level, with the top prize at the National level being a $10,000 college scholarship.
Compatriot Chuck Olson is the Mount Vernon Scouting Chairman and is also the leader of Troop 463 at Mt. Vernon Methodist Church.
He presented the 2021 Chapter winner of the Arthur M. and Berdena King Competition, Eagle Scout Donald John Eberly with an Eagle Scout patch and a monetary recognition gift.
This occurred at the 2022 Annual Chapter Banquet in February of 2022. (See Feb. 2022 Events page)
Eagle Scout Donald John Eberly is the son of Daniel Lee and Mary Catherine Eberly, who were also present at the presentation.
Along the trail to Eagle, Donald has earned 32 merit badges, giving him a bronze and gold palm for his Eagle Scout Award, and was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout in 2021 at the age of 16.
He remains an active member of Troop 463 and is working on earning a few more merit bages which will make him the first Eagle Scout in his troup to earn bronze, gold and silver palms
plus a second bronze palm since 2009.
Donald is in the 11th grade at Ben Franklin Academy where he has a GPA of 3.9.
He and his family are members of Saint Judes Roman Catholic Church in Sandy Springs.
We congratulate Eagle Scout Eberly for his achievements.
