Three La Mesa brothers earn highest rank of National Eagle Scout on same day
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Three brothers from La Mesa achieved the Eagle Scout rank together. The Eagle Scout rank is the best-known and most- prestigious award in the Scouts BSA organization, formerly known as the Boy Scouts of America, but only about 4 percent of all Scouts devote the substantial time and effort to earn it.
The Epperson brothers – 16-year-old Jacob; 15-year-old Joshua; and 13-year-old Noah – are members of Troop 370, located in La Mesa. Jacob was on track to complete his Eagle requirements earlier this year but opted to wait until October 24, 2019 when all three brothers could have their Boards of Review together. On that day, all three achieved the Eagle Scout rank.
Jacob, Joshua and Noah Epperson were in studio to tell us all about their journey.
