Norman Augustine has done many amazing things in his life. He graduated from Princeton University magna cum laude, he was the CEO of Lockheed Martin, he has received the NASA Distinguished Public Service Award, and much, much more.
But before he did any of that he did one other very amazing thing: he became a Scout.
“Scouting had a profound impact on my life and the lives of many top business leaders I worked with over my career,” said Mr. Augustine. “I will never forget the extraordinary times I had in Scouting, particularly at summer camp.”
Earlier this year Mr. Augustine reached a milestone not many Scouting volunteers achieve; he reached 75 years of continuous and active membership in the Scouts. During that time he served as BSA’s National President, received the Silver Buffalo Award for his work in service to young people, and was recognized with the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award.
And Mr. Augustine is not the only Eagle in his family. Since earning his Eagle Scout Award in 1952 he has been joined by every other man in his family. That’s right; every male member of the Augustine family is an Eagle Scout! It is inspiring to see the impact Scouting has had on one family.
Thank you, Mr. Augustine, for your many years of dedication and service to our Scouts and to our nation!
