Raymond Nicholson II Spirit of the Eagle Scholarship

Ray Nicholson II

Raymond Nicholson was an Eagle Scout of Byesville Troop 542. He passed away in 2013. Raymond’s family and friends wanted his spirit of Scouting to continue and started the Raymond Nicholson II Spirit of Scouting Eagle Scout Scholarship in 2014 to assist those Scouts with continuing education. Each year a Scholarship of $500 is given to an Eagle Scout of Muskingum Valley Council. We urge all Eagle Scouts who are planning on attending College or Technical training in the 2015 year to apply.

For more information and application click HERE


To help support the Scholarship please consider purchasing a memorial Raymond Nicholson II Spirit of the Eagle patch for $10. This patch was designed with Raymond’s love for Scouting, motorcycles, and adventure in mind.
