Amy Miseli
Amy Miseli is a member of the first group of girls receiving the Eagle Scout award.

Amy Miseli is a Lakes High School senior with a 3.9 GPA and the daughter of Col. And Mrs. Jason Miseli.  Becoming an Eagle Scout has been a dream for her.  In order to get to this point, she needed to earn 21 different merit badges.  As a member of Tacoma Troop 216 G, she needed to work hard to advance from Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star and on to Life Scout.  She needed to demonstrate camping skills, leadership, environmental responsibility, first aid, citizenship and family responsibility, among other qualities.  She needed to demonstrate that she was trustworthy, reverent and of good moral character.  And she had to have outstanding community, scholastic and Scouting references.  She is an accomplished high school athlete as a cross-country runner, wrestler and a member of the track team. She is also a Junior ROTC cadet.  Troop 216 G is chartered by St. Mark’s Lutheran Church By The Narrows.  Miseli says she is humbled to be a role model for other young women in Scouting.  

About 8-10 girls are expected to be in the first class of female Eagle Scouts in the Pacific Harbors Council.  Last year, 251 local Scouts earned the coveted Eagle Rank.   Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or rank attainable in the Scouts BSA program of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Since its inception in 1911, only four percent of Scouts have earned this rank after a lengthy review process. The Eagle Scout rank has been earned by more than 2.5 million young people.
