Distinguished Eagle Scout
The Distinguished Eagle Scout Award is presented to a Eagle Scout who has demonstrated distinguished service in his profession and to his community for a period of at least twenty-five years after attaining the level of Eagle Scout. Significant accomplishment in one's career and a solid record of continued community volunteer involvement are also considered.

He is a graduate of OSU (BSEE, MSIE, and Ph.D.) and has taught at both OSU and Virginia Tech. He is a licensed professional engineer and was named the Outstanding Engineer in Oklahoma in 1987.

Outstanding Eagle Scout Award
The NESA Outstanding Eagle Scout Award (NOESA) is a prestigious recognition granted by the local council’s NESA committee to Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level. Unlike the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award, which is a national award, the NOESA recognizes Eagle Scouts whose efforts have made a positive impact closer to home.
Nominations will open January 1 of each year for the NOESA. Nominations will close on January 21. One award will be chosen from the nominations submitted. Applications must be complete. No more than 3 letters of recommendation may be included with the application. The NEOSA will be awarded at the annual Council banquet.
For further information, and to download the nomination form for the Outstanding Eagle Scout Award, visit the NESA website.
Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award
The nomination period will open on January 1 and close January 21 of each year. An Eagle Scout, his parents, or any registered BSA volunteer (with the Eagle Scout’s permission) may submit his Eagle Scout leadership service project for consideration. The Scout must have passed his Eagle board of review in the prior calendar year (January 1 to December 31). One winner will be chosen from among those submitted. The NESSPY will be awarded at the annual Council banquet.
