Any questions? If Mary Lou Hord's signature is not on the Eagle Application, we can not do the Eagle Board. 

The troop must also have the scout's "goal statement", letters (at least 3), The latest Eagle Application with all of the appropriate signatures, The scout must have been in the troop with a leadership job for 6 months as a Life Scout.

There seems to be a misunderstanding on the Eagle application process.
Eagle boards of review CANNOT be conducted prior to council verification of ALL requirements.
Please help keep the process clean by following BSA guidelines.
Here is the policy from the 2015 Advancement guide.
Thank you for your assistance in adhering to BSA guidelines. Council Verifies Application and Board of Review Scheduled
Everything is checked against council records. If information in the BSA system or council files is incomplete, the Scout or the unit will be asked to provide certificates, blue cards, or other suitable proof that merit badges and ranks were earned and that dates are accurate. The regular use the of BSA Internet portal for reporting advancement as described in section 6 will help expedite this process. If everything is correct, the council provides a verification signature, files a copy of the application, and sends the original with the service project workbook and other items (such as reference letters received) to the board of review chair or other designated volunteer. The board should be scheduled only after the council-verified application is received.
