Court of Honor Program

The Eagle Recognition Committee runs NESA Pittsburgh's Court of Honor (COH) Program, whose purpose is to recognize Eagle Scouts at their Eagle Court of Honor. The goal of the COH Program is to enhance the experience of a new Eagle Scout's formal award ceremony through the presentation of a signed copy of the book “Legacy of Honor”. This book is a memoir, a story of Eagle Scouts across this great land, and is a reminder to the new Eagle Scout of what they have accomplished by attaining the rank of Eagle.

Please contact the Eagle Recognition Committee Chairman, Jamie Uber, and he will arrange for a NESA Pittsburgh member to attend the Eagle Court of Honor and make the presentation. Jamie can be reached at: ( or 412-782-2710.


  • The Eagle Scout pins are intended to be worn by Eagle Scouts and NESA members while in civilian clothing. These pins are meant to help self-identify as an Eagle Scout. The pins are excellent conversation-starters and networking event must-haves. Use the pins in conjunction with the NESA cards to help the NESA organization promote, recruit, and grow. 
  • The NESA cards are intended to be carried around by NESA members on their person. These cards are meant for those special occasions when you meet another Eagle in the wild and would like to recruit them into the NESA organization, if they aren't already. These cards contain instructions for joining the NESA organization.
