SAR Supports Scouting
The Piedmont Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution
(SAR) supports the Boy Scouts of America through it's
Eagle Scout program as well as having members who are
qualified merit badge counselors for American Heritage,
Citizenship in the Nation and Genealogy.
When a Scout has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the Chapter
will recognize the Scout by presenting the Scout with
a Certificate of Achievement. This Certificate can be
presented to the Scout at the Court of Honor ceremony
by a member of the Piedmont Chapter.
To request a Certificate of Achievement, contact the Piedmont
Chapter Eagle Scout Committee Chairman. Please provide,
the full name of the Scout, the unit number, the date
of the Eagle Court of Honor and the name and contact information
for the Scoutmaster or Troop Advancement Coordinator.

In addition to this, the SAR invites all Eagle Scouts
(under 19 years of age) to participate in the Arthur M.

this contest at the local SAR Chapter level through the
Piedmont Chapter. If they are recognized as the overall
winner, they advance to the Georgia Society SAR contest
level. If they are the overall winner at State, they are
eligible to enter the National SAR Eagle Scout Award contest.
