The Mother Lode Chapter recognizes Eagle Scouts through "SAR Certificates of Recognition" at BSA Courts of Honor and also participates in the CASSAR and the NSSAR Arthur M. & Berdena King Eagle Scout Award.
For many years the SAR has recognized the many common bonds of purpose and principles shared by the SAR and the Boy Scouts of America.
Young men achieving the rank of Eagle Scout have demonstrated their belief in these common principles. For this reason, the SAR believes that Eagle Scouts are deserving of special recognition for their dedication and accomplishment.
There are two elements to this recognition. First, there is a recognition of all new Eagle Scouts. This does not depend on any later decision by the new Eagle Scout about whether to compete for the scholarships available, or not. It merely requires someone in the scout troop adult leadership to send a request for the SAR Eagle Scout Recognition Certificate.
