Eagle Tip - Sister (and Brother) Act
By: Posted On: 2015-02-12

Sister (and Brother) Act

An Eagle court of honor focuses lots of attention on a single individual--and that can cause a little (or a lot of) jealousy in little sisters and brothers who suddenly aren’t getting any attention.

Sister (and Brother) Act

A few years back, an Eagle Scout I heard of solved this problem by presenting his little sister with a small rose corsage, similar to the ones often worn by Eagle moms. As their mom, Kathy Carwile, explained, the cost was minimal (under $5), but “the look of delight on our daughter's face when her big brother presented this corsage to her before the ceremony was priceless. She knew that even though this was his big day, he was thinking about her.”

Rose corsages wouldn’t work for little brothers, but with a little imagination, you can come up with something to present to them. A Scout lapel pin backed with a small piece of red, white, and blue ribbon would be appropriate, for example, or the new Eagle might present his nine-year-old brother with his very own Boy Scout Handbook.
