Emily Schmidt is a member of the inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts.

Two A&S students have made history.

Sophie Froese and Emily Schmidt are among the inaugural class of less than 500 females across the United States who earned the Eagle Scout rank last month with the Boy Scouts of America–no small feat to reach in the two years since the program began accepting young women. The rank requires 21 merit badges and a community service project, accomplishments that can take some Scouts up to eight years to achieve.
