A record 10 Boy Scouts from Troop 352 of Notre Dame Church in Bethlehem were inducted into the Eagle Scout of Court of Honor ceremony Jan. 17 at Lehigh University’s Iacocca Hall.
According to Lori Weber of the Minsi Trails Council Boy Scouts of America headquarters in Allentown, the induction ceremony of 10 scouts from the same troop is the area’s largest ceremony.
The newly inducted Eagle Scouts attend four different high schools - Emmaus, Bethlhem Catholic, Freedom and Liberty - but have been together for 10 years since moving up from Cub Scouts.
