Behind every Eagle Scout, there’s a story.
A story of perseverance. Of parents and adult volunteers offering guidance and support. Of merit badges, camping trips and service projects.
Multiply each individual Eagle Scout story by 52,160, and you’ll begin to see just how much impact Eagle Scouts had on their communities in 2018.
Exactly 52,160 young men — representing all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia — earned Scouting’s highest honor last year.
Let’s dive into the numbers.
Putting the number in perspective
With 52,160 Eagle Scouts, the Class of 2018 is officially the eighth-biggest Eagle Scout class in history.
For comparison, 2012’s record-setting class had 58,659 Eagle Scouts. (See the full year-by-year numbers later in the post.)
If all of those Class of 2018 Eagle Scouts wanted to gather to watch some Major League Baseball, there’s only place they could go.
With a capacity of 56,000, only Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles (seen above) is large enough to hold everyone.
