David Munson, RIT president, recently received the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. The award is presented to an Eagle Scout for distinguished service in his profession and to his community for a period of at least 25 years after attaining the level of Eagle Scout. Munson earned his Eagle Scout in the late 1960s after creating a large map for his public service project that featured The Circleville Pumpkin Show. The festival is held each fall in the small city located in central Ohio. The four-day event, which today draws nearly 400,000 visitors annually, is considered to be the biggest festival in the nation dedicated to pumpkins.
