George Maul was recognized as one of the most outstanding adult Eagle Scouts in Central Florida when he was given the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) Outstanding Eagle Scout Award at the Central Florida Council Annual Recognition Banquet June 1 in Orlando.
Maul, a professor of oceanography at Florida Tech, has been an Eagle Scout for 59 years. He has a distinguished tenure in the Scouts, from serving as troop leader and district commissioner to being recipient of the Silver Beaver and Vigil Honor in the Order of the Arrow. He earned his Doctor of Commissioner Science in Scouting.
“This award recognizes Eagle Scouts who have brought great honor to the highest rank of the Boy Scouts of America through their personal and professional contributions at the local, state and regional level,” the award certificate reads.
Maul told the Central Florida Council what Scouting has meant to him and his family: “Returning to our roots of duty to God, duty to country, duty to others.”
