Four percent of Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Scout rank. But girls?

 Last year, the Boy Scouts of America started allowing girls to join. Already those girls are starting to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. Take Katie Hunter of Vienna, Virginia, for example. She started out as Girl Scout, but was jealous of her brothers since she felt Boy Scout activities were more fun. When BSA allowed girls to join, Katie jumped at the chance.

Since then, she's been hard at work earning merit badges, mentoring younger scouts, and doing community service. She recently finished her Eagle Scout project by building garden boxes at a local elementary school. She finished all requirements to be an Eagle Scout in the fastest time allowed by the BSA. She will soon be in the first class of girls to achieve the Eagle Scout rank.
