As with the First Aid Merit Badge, these parents bring great expertise to the three Merit Badges. Mark Filip has served our country in many ways but most especially as a Federal Judge, Assistant Attorney General, and Attorney General of the United States. Among his various degrees, John Hoff did a masters degree in Military History at the American War College, worked in the Office of Chief Counsel of the FAA, and is a Colonel in the USAF Reserves. Rob Bahan has spent his career working in Municipal government and is the Winnetka Village Manager.
As noted below, all three of these badges are required for Eagle Rank and the Troop normally offers them every other year. The normal program will be 4-5 classes that will be scheduled at the first meeting based around peoples schedules. I would suggest that if you want to get the most out of these Merit Badges you think about doing them in or later than your 7th grade year but we will allow those 6th graders who think they can meet the challenge to do it this spring.
Please RSVP to Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and a huge thanks to Mark Filip, John Hoff, and Rob Bahan for taking this on.
