This brought the number of new Eagles in Troop 21 to 10 in 1964, a record for the Kiwanis-sponsored troop. Scout Waitsman is one of the youngest troop members to ever attain the rank of Eagle. He completed his requirements in November but had to wait until he became 13 years of age to officially receive the award. Charlie Hogg is troop scoutmaster. Under his leadership 69 scouts have now risen to Eagle.
