Each year roughly 50,000 young men join the ranks of one of America's most honored groups: the Eagle Scouts. Alvin Townley set off across the nation to hear the stories of Eagles from all walks of life, including civil rights leaders, soldiers, politicians, businessmen, and conservationists who began their life's journey in Scouting and went on to play a key role in American history. Townley shows how the experiences of youth have guided the paths these Eagles followed as adults and defined the common virtues that have shaped our nation. The only book of its kind, "Legacy of Honor" is a celebration of the remarkable men that have established a universally renowned image and created a lasting legacy that Scouts past and present can look to for inspiration.
Alvin Townley spent a year traveling throughout the country to explore the legacy of America's Eagle Scouts. In thousands of miles of travel, he met with Eagles from all walks of life. The result was Legacy of Honor, a uniquely powerful narrative of character and virtue in American life.Alvin's journey truly began years ago in Atlanta, Georgia, where he followed the Scouting path of his grandfather and father and earned his Eagle Scout rank with Troop 103. He is a Brotherhood Member of the Order of the Arrow and has completed High Adventure treks at the Florida Sea Base, the Northern Tier Canoe Bases, and Philmont Scout Ranch. The author graduated from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. He has interned in the U.S. House of Representatives, served on the executive staff of an international consulting firm, and worked for his alma mater, where he built relationships with alumni across the country and spoke to classes on corporate strategy and ethics. Alvin currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, where he works and coaches at Marist School. He also works with Reach for Excellence, a tuition-free program benefiting talented middle school students from underserved communities.
