Gathering of Eagles & Silver Beavers 2018

Gathering of Eagles & Silver Beavers

You are invited

More than 100 Scouts in the Bay Area Council earn their Eagle each year. To honor their achievement, the Bay Area Council holds the Gathering of Eagles.

This will be a very special evening for the 2018 Eagles, Eagle Alumni, parents, sponsors, and guests.  It is our hope that you will help make this a memorable event by sponsoring one or more Eagles, as well as joining us in commemorating this memorable event.

We will also honor our Venture Award recipients and our Silver Beaver recipients. The Silver Beaver Award is presented for distinguished service to youth. It is the highest honor that Bay Area Council may bestow upon a volunteer. We will join us in honoring ours volunteers as well.

He was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University and Master of Science degrees in Systems Engineering and Physical Science from the Air Force Institute of Technology and the University of Houston - Clear Lake, respectively. After completing graduate work, he was detailed to NASA’s Johnson Space Center, where he supported space shuttle flight operations, beginning with STS-3.

Fossum left active duty in 1992, and retired as a Colonel from the U.S. Air Force Reserves in 2010. Fossum retired from NASA in January 2017, and currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer of Texas A&M University at Galveston.
