Fellow Scouts and Scouters,
The effects of the pandemic continued to ripple through the year. But as we have proved, Scouts and our Scouting programs are resilient. We persevered while making trustworthy decisions and remaining loyal to each other and our mission.

Scouting is about leadership. It is about character, citizenship, and engaging in our communities in ways that make a difference. Youth who are involved in our Scouting programs are more likely to graduate from high school and college. They are more likely to engage with their families and friends, and are more likely to value diversity and a whole lot of other things that truly make a difference in the lives of human beings and families. That’s what our Scouts do.

We change the way that children grow up. We help them grow into positive adults. We are proud of what we do. We do it in a safe way that allows kids to become better people.

Yours in Scouting,

Council President Mr. James L. ” JP” Morgan
Scout Executive/CEO Mario Perez
& Council Commissioner Julia Mae-Shen Lesko

Realizing the importance of STEM education, this year NCAC adopted STEM Scouts® program after is was discontinued by national BSA. Now, our program is focused on fun ways for girls and boys in three divisions: grades 3-5; grades 6-8; and grades 9-12 to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The educational content, developed and vetted by STEM educators, is designed to be immersive and to inspire teamwork, problem solving, and independent thinking through hands-on activities delivered directly to the unit, this 26-week program is ultimately designed to be challenging, thought-provoking and, especially, fun. 

Notable STEM Project

The Stem2Share Eagle Scout project by Kellen targeted low-income and disadvantaged students to consider STEM careers by building Raspberry Pis for the students to access, the project produced added value through content that could be viewed by all students in the form of a STEM video library on Youtube and STEM Quotes on twitter and Instagram.

Prepared. For Life.

Trevor, a Scout from Prince George’s County, MD, was recognized with a national heroism award when he acted after recognizing that his grandmother was having a stroke and she is alive today because of his actions. 

Community Service

Notable Eagle Scout Service Projects

Tristin extensively restored an outdoor area for a senior center by removing dead trees, deteriorating planter boxes, and rotting horseshoe pits, picnic tables, and benches, then following ADA guidelines to install composite wood tables and benches along with planters that he designed.

Ian organized the collection of a large number of donations to serve mothers in need by partnering with local churches, local stores, his fellow scouts, and other community members to provide baby items, clothing, diapers, formula, and other essentials.

Brian and his Troop converted a room in a church previously used for storage into a food pantry which positively impacted the lives of those looking for quality food who are not able to afford it due to unemployment or homelessness. People struggling with hunger now have another option to feed themselves.

Notable Environmental & Conservation Service Project

Jonathan Rummel received the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award.  Jonathan, built and deployed artificial fish habitats, also known as fish attractors at six different locations at Burke Lake. He used three different types of artificial habitats at each of the six sites including, wood pallet, bucket trees, and hose matrix. He worked with Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) to deploy the habitats and a Virginia State fisheries biologist to approve the plan. During the Covid-19 pandemic, many more people had time to fish, and many became interested in this outdoor hobby. As a result, the fishing pressure greatly increased. Fishing habitats provide areas for baitfish to thrive and give the predator fish good forage.

Notable Global/Community Outreach Service Projects

Nicholas, a Life Scout from Chantilly,VA, explained, “When the Russian invasion of Ukraine started in February of 2022, one of my close friends shared concerns about his family in Kyiv, Ukraine, and the hardship they had to face to survive from Russian bombing of their homes and neighborhood. I started thinking about how I might be able to help.” He embarked on a project to mobilized his Troop and community to meet the overwhelming needs in medical supplies, baby items, and food for the war-torn country. He learned about and took advantage of free advertising credits to run ads on digital networks and used local blogs and publishing platforms to inform local neighbors. From these initial efforts the project gathered and packed almost 80 boxes of food, baby items, and medical supplies, and collected 70 boxes of diapers. After placing fliers on 3,000 houses, his volunteers collected and packed an additional 55 boxes, showing their resilience during poor weather conditions and heavy rain at the collection time. “I am very proud of the work my Troop and I did because of its impact and because it helped to save lives. I want people to know about the work that takes place to support Ukraine and other countries in the same circumstances around the world,” said Nicholas.
