Eagle Scout Commencement

2016 Eagle Scout Class Commencement & Alumni Reception


VCU Student Commons
907 Floyd Avenue
Richmond, VA 23284

The New Eagle Scout Commencement recognizes the previous year’s Eagle Scout class.


The Heart of Virginia Council continues its tradition of providing this event free of charge for the 2016 Eagle Scout and two guests, which will be underwritten with generous sponsorships by many Scout Alumni, Chartered Organizations, Scouting supporters, and local businesses. Each sponsorship is a tax-deductible contribution that directly supports each Eagle Scout with their Eagle Kit including certificate, medal, badges, pins free of charge.

Family members, Scout Leaders, and Eagle Scout Alumni are encouraged to attend this very special program to recognize the young men of the Eagle Scout Class of 2016.

Event includes a special commencement address from a keynote speaker, recognitions of the Scouts of the 2016 Eagle Class, Adams Service Project of the Year Award, 27th Eagle Class honoree, and National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA).


RSVP by registering online or submitting this registration form to the Council Service Center. Each 2016 Eagle Scout must RSVP separately.
