Subject: Eagle Scout Extension Requests, email addresses below

Good morning,

Please have up and coming Eagle Scouts fill out the following form if they are in need of an extension due to situations out of their control.

Once completed, please scan and send to myself and Jon Pleva along with the letter (see below). USUALLY National has to sign off on extensions. During this crisis they have waived this requirement and Council level employees can grant extensions. Jon will be signing all extension requests and cc'ing me so I can get them back to you.

Some of the criteria on page 2 of the document I linked above are a little 'off' because of what I just said above. Please disregard them.

The following is copy/pasted from the Advancement Guide regarding HOW to file for an extension. In addition to the form linked above - the following must be sent in.

1. The Scout, the Scout’s parent or guardian, the unit leader, or a member of the unit committee may file the request. It is preferred that the request be made in the form of a letter that is signed and dated by the author.
It is sent to the council service center to the attention of the council’s designated appeals coordinator ( Jon Pleva). It is preferred that requests be submitted before the 18th birthday ( it will be REQUIRED that extension applications are submitted before the 18th birthday for all COVID-19 based requests)
The request must indicate the number of months after the 18th birthday that will be necessary to complete the requirements. The Request for Extension form is submitted by council after it has completed their review.

I hope that clears it up, I know I've had a LOT of concerned folks asking about this. Please spread the word and explain the system where possible.

Jenny Trickett
