Noah Drake Robertson of Iuka won the Gold Citizenship Medal for The American Legion "Eagle Scout of the Year" for Mississippi and was nominated to The American Legion National Headquarters for consideration for further national awards.  Noah also received the Silver Citizenship Medal and Citation for winning his District for his outstanding community service and many accomplishments entailed in the rigorous competition for the "Eagle Scout of the Year" award.

            Other recipients of District level "Eagle Scout of the Year" awards include Henry Rogers Varner, III of Cleveland and Matthew A. Turley of Hattiesburg.

            The American Legion "Eagle Scout of the Year" Award program serves to recognize the highest level of leadership and achievement on the part of Boy Scouts who on a constant basis give so much of themselves on behalf of community service and helping others.  Many programs within Mississippi communities are designed to recognize and benefit our children, however, no program known recognizes the service and work performed by Eagle Scouts and the contributions made by Boy Scouts on a day-to-day basis.
