An Eagle Court of Honor was held by Boy Scout Troop 1393 on July 10 at the Crossroads Church of Christ in McMurray. Evan R. Gourley and Richard D. Malstrom were recognized by friends and relatives for achieving this highest rank of the Boy Scouts. Only four percent of all Scouts reach this coveted honor.

The new Eagles received many letters of recognition from national, state, and local leaders acknowledging their effort and success.
Attending and representing the B.P.O.E. was Eugene Eckman, Leading Knight of the Pittsburgh South Hills Lodge 2213 in Bethel Park. He presented the two new Eagles with two framed certificates each. One from the local lodge, and one from the Grand Lodge in Chicago. He also gave each a personal U.S. flag and a small gold pin which represents the 80 + year relationship between the two organizations.
