Message From Your President


Welcome Fellow Eagle Scouts,

 

     I am honored and humbled to be your President. The Eagle Scout Association of Greater St. Louis is celebrating 75 years of serving the Scouts of the Greater St. Louis Area Council this year. The mission of the ESA follows the ethical values of the Boy Scout Oath and Law. We are a Brotherhood of Eagle Scouts that serve our Scouts through service projects, camp improvements and trail to Eagle support. Our members continue to give back to Scouting for what Scouting has bestowed upon them. We are servant leaders with a goal of helping Scouts succeed in the Boy Scout program. Future Eagle Scouts will become the distinguished leaders of tomorrow. We are a social organization, and plan various activities to promote fellowship, team building and friendship.

 

     Founded in 1947, the Eagle Scout Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and our membership dues cover our operating expenses. 100% of our fundraising proceeds are returned to BSA related programs of the St. Louis Area Council.  These include Eagle Scout project grants, the NYLT program through Camp Sakima improvements and the Wood Badge program by providing a grant for coffee for the program and air conditioning Sverdrup lodge. The Eagle Shotgun Range at S-F was funded and built by the ESA and provides both skeet and trap shooting for an enhanced BSA shotgun program. Merit Badge Make-Up Day is an excellent example of the ESA providing an opportunity for Scouts to move forward on the Eagle trail. Scouts can complete partial merit badges from summer camp at this annual event.

     The ESA has a strong relationship with Shawnee Lodge. We actively seek Cheerful Service opportunities at Fall Reunions and Spring Conclaves. Our leadership team has recently approved Section Conclave scholarships for youth Arrowmen. These scholarships are offered to youth Arrowmen from every lodge in the Greater St. Louis Area Council. Our continued support of the OA helps provide a better experience for the scouts.

 

    The Eagle Scout Association supports the entire Greater St. Louis Area Council through is support of the Council wide annual Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner. The dinner is a Council event that honors every scout that earns the Eagle Scout rank from the previous calendar year. ESA provides volunteers for the event and purchases a table to show our strong support for Council. In addition to the support of the annual dinner, ESA underwrites the cost of the Eagle Kits given to the scouts when they complete their requirements for Eagle.

     We invite all Eagle Scouts to join our organization and become involved to help continue to support GSLAC and the scouting movement.  Although being an Eagle Scout is a requirement for membership we welcome everyone in our efforts for fundraising and service. Please continue to support our major fundraising events, our Trivia Night and annual Golf tournament and reach out to your Eagle friends and encourage them to join this awesome group of Eagle Scouts. Here’s to another 75 years of service to the Scouting program!!! Please join me in building a brighter future for the scouts of the Greater St. Louis Area Council.

 

"Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!!!"

 

Yours in Scouting,

Gerhard Glassl

“Think about it. Becoming an Eagle Scout is just about the only thing you can put on your resume at age fifty that you did at age fourteen - and it still impresses.”
