A Record Number of Whitman HS Eagle Scouts Set to Graduate

This is an exceptional year for Walt Whitman graduates. But the story behind the story may well be that we have an unprecedented number of Eagle Scouts graduating on June 24th. Missing the national record by only one, presently held in Texas with an even dozen, Walt Whitman is graduating eleven exceptional Eagle Scouts who over the years have contributed greatly to the fabric of their schools and the community.
