Only four percent of Boy Scouts earn this rank
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Jose H. Valcourt III, 14, has earned the Boy Scouts highest rank of Eagle Scout and will celebrate this accomplishment with a special Eagle Scout Court of Honor this weekend.
The rank of Eagle Scout may be earned by a Boy Scout who has been a Life Scout for at least six months, has earned a minimum of 21 merit badges, has demonstrated Scout Spirit, and has demonstrated leadership within his troop, team, crew or ship.
Additionally he must plan, develop, and lead a service project—the Eagle Project—that demonstrates both leadership and a commitment to duty.
“Our son wanted to do something special for Harbor City Elementary school where he attended, so he met with the principal and came up with his Eagle Project, a reading and meditation garden for the children,” said his proud mother Lissette Valcourt.
Valcourt is a freshman in the International Baccalaureate program at Melbourne High School and is a member of the freshman basketball team. He also plays AAU basketball, writes, produces and performs his own rap music, and collects sneakers.
“He is an amazing son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend – loved by all who know him,” said Lissette Valcourt.
“Congratulations, Jose! Mom, Dad and Sofia love you very much. You make us so proud every day!”
