Tune-in to Monday’s episode of “Steve Harvey” (October 13) to see 13 year old Eagle Scout, James Hightower III from Glendale, WI, chat with Steve Harvey! James made history when at the age of 12, he became the youngest African American to make the rank of Eagle Scout!
“Steve Harvey” can be seen locally in the Milwaukee area on WISN 12 (ABC), weekdays at 3:00PM.
James joined the scouts at the age of seven, after being inspired by the Eagle Scout ceremonies of his two older cousins. James would ultimately like to attend Harvard and says he “joined the scouts with the intent of becoming an Eagle Scout, to help me get into Harvard.” James says that there are over 130 potential merit badges that a scout can earn, and he already has earned 60 of them! To become an Eagle Scout, only 21 merit badges are required.
Steve Harvey will help James try to earn yet another merit badge, live on the show! Tune-in to see Steve test James on his knowledge of fingerprints and his skill in actually documenting Steve’s fingerprints. If James can pass the test, he will be given his fingerprinting merit badge, live on the show!
