There’s little doubt that Mike Rowe, best known as host of TV’s “Dirty Jobs,” was the star of the closing arena show at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree, a role he reprised again in 2013. But did you know that Rowe, an Eagle Scout from Baltimore, will send a personalized letter of congratulations to any new Eagle Scout?
You can read the letter, and learn how to request a copy, at http://mikerowe.com/about-mike/eagle-scout-letter/. Quite different from the typical congratulatory letter, Rowe’s letter helps put the Eagle Scout Award in context for those Scouts who look forward to resting on their laurels in the years to come.
In fact, you ever find yourself in the position of writing congratulatory letters, you probably couldn’t find a better model to follow.
