On February 29, 2012, the Eagle Scout Association of the Sam Houston Area Council, Boy Scouts of America honored 940 young men as the new Eagle Scout class of 2011 at the Merrell Center in Katy, Texas. Guy Parker, BrandExtract’s Chief Creative Officer, Eagle Scout 1974, provided branding and marketing support for the event that was an enthusiastic success with over 1000 in attendance. BrandExtract produced invitations, signage, printed programs and the audio visual show for the event.
Michael Garfield, “The High-Tech Texan”, Eagle Scout 1978, was an engaging emcee and Nasa Astronaut Michael Fossum, Eagle Scout 1975, recently returning from six months on the International Space Station delivered an inspirational keynote to new Eagle Scouts, parents, Eagle alumni and special guests. These 940 Eagle scouts conducted Eagle Scout service projects totaling over 142,000 hours of service to local community organizations at a value of over $2 million. Guy is also a charter and founding member of ESA and currently serves as their marketing chairman. BrandExtract is proud to support organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America that guide youth along a pathway to achievement, service and leadership.
