Troop 65 Participates in Distinguished Eagle Scout Award Court of Honor

Posted by carolecraft on Dec 10 2014 - 9:30am

Troop 65 was honored to participate in the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award (DESA) Court of Honor for Bernie Queneau on Saturday, December 6. Alex K participated on behalf of our troop, along with members of two other local troops. Also in attendance were several past DESA winner, Congressman Tim Murphy, and a retired Navy Admiral, who presented a plaque from the Secretary of the Navy. Dr. Queneau was named an honorary Eagle of our troop this summer when we participated in his 102nd birthday celebration.

The DESA is given to Eagle Scouts who have achieved extraordinary national-level recognition, fame, or eminence within their field, and have a strong record of voluntary service to their community. Only Eagle Scouts who earned the Eagle Scout rank a minimum of 25 years previously are eligible for nomination. The award is given by the National Eagle Scout Association upon the recommendation of a committee of Distinguished Eagle Scouts.

Sadly, Dr. Queneau passed away the very next day. It has been our privilege to meet and recognize Dr. Queneau, and our thoughts are with his family.

Read about Bernie Queneau's life and DESA award in Scouting magazine.

Watch the news report about Dr. Queneau's award.
