Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 2 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1912. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.

To make it to this lofty goal a Scout must have earned a minimum of 21 Merit Badges, including 13 specifically required in Citizenship, Communication, Personal Fitness, Personal Management, Camping, First Aid, and more. Next, the Scout must demonstrate leadership by taking on specific positions, such as being a Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, or Senior Patrol Leader, or other Troop level responsibilities. And then lastly the Scout must plan and lead their Eagle Scout Service Project.

The Eagle Scout service project is different from other service projects the Scout has been involved in because they are the leader. The Eagle project must be of significant value to the community outside of Scouting (town, church, school, etc.), must take considerably more time than a Star or Life project (though planning and preparation time count), and must provide leadership to others during the project.

Since Troop 24 was first chartered in January of 2012, as a combination of Troops 1 and 35, there have been thirteen Scouts who have attained the rank of Eagle. Troop 24’s Eagles are as follows:
