St. Thomas is proud to salute Sean Donovan ‘23 for earning the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

Donovan continues the thriving legacy of Eagle scholars who have reached this milestone accomplishment that is richly recognized throughout the United States. Since the BSA inception in 1911, only four percent of scouts have earned this honor after a lengthy review process.

Donovan achieved his distinction through Troop 673 chartered through St. Cecilia Catholic Church while serving various leadership positions including patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, scribe, quartermaster, and chaplain aide. He’s obtained 31 merit badges, as well as the Gold and Bronze Palms.

Donovan’s significant service project in completing his Eagle Scout qualifications benefited The Mission of Yahweh, a Houston outreach program and shelter for homeless women and their children. Donovan led a team of scouts, friends, and family in a 58-hour volunteer effort, repairing and refurbishing a valuable storage facility that houses a large volume of donations and supplies.

Donovan has contributed to a series of summer camps at the Hale Scout Reservation in Oklahoma and the National Youth Leadership Training at the Bovay Scout Ranch in Navasota.  He’s also participated in a wide variety of fundraising events, cooking competitions, Christmas greenery sales, and the esteemed Wreaths Across America that honors veterans at Arlington National Cemetery and across the United States.

The National Honor Society member is a two-sport Eagle student-athlete and member of the St. Thomas Business and Eagles for Life clubs. His collective successes, on and off-campus, are a testament to a deep dedication to the BSA values of character, citizenship, community service with strict allegiance to the purpose and goals of Troop 673 – all consistent with the Basilian credo of Teach Me Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge.

Catholic. Basilian. Teaching Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge since 1900.
