A three-foot-tall trophy that lists Islanders who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout between 1934 and 1990, the highest honor that can be earned by a Boy Scout, is looking for a permanent home.

The wood and brass trophy, topped by an eagle, was rescued five years ago as the Mercer Island Boys & Girls Club East Seattle location was shutting down.

It is a large presentation piece (with a carved wooden eagle under glass) that has individual plaques with the names of the Island Scouts.

There are more than 100 individuals named on plaques.
