PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Provo's Boy Scout Troop 192 may be the first to produce 100 Eagle Scouts after it honored its 98th, 99th, and 100th Eagle Scouts over the weekend.
National Scout spokesman Greg Shields said he has never heard of another troop achieving the century mark in Eagles. However, that doesn't mean it hasn't been done. The national office simply doesn't keep track.
Troop 192 was formed back in 1961.
On Saturday, Troop 192 and members of its sponsoring organization threw a party to celebrate the achievement.
Sixty of the living Eagle Scouts showed up for the party and reunion.
Shields said there are about 3 (M)million Scouts and Cub Scouts in the U-S. Only four-percent of Scouts ever reach the rank of Eagle.
