BC: Scouting's Bottom Line What happens to a Scout? For every 100 boys who join Scouting, records indicate that: RARELY will one be brought before the juvenile court system 2 will become Eagle Scouts 17 will become future Scout volunteers 12 will have their first contact with a church 1 will enter the clergy 5 will earn their church award 18 will develop a hobby that will last through their adult life 8 will enter a vocation that was learned through the merit badge system Scouting's alumni record is equally impressive. A recent nationwide survey of high schools revealed the following information: 85% of student council presidents were Scouts 89% of senior class presidents were Scouts 80% of junior class presidents were Scouts 75% of school publication editors were Scouts 71% of football captains were Scouts Scouts also account for: 64% of Air Force Academy graduates 68% of West Point graduates 70% of Annapolis graduates 72% of Rhodes scholars 85% of F.B.I. agents 26 of the first 29 astronauts Note: Since this was written the percentage of Eagle Scouts has climbed to nearly 4%. The Eagle Scout Service in 1997 announced that the figure was 3.89%.
