Upper Saddle River NJ, Sarah Renee Bakal of Upper Saddle River has become Bergen County’s first female Eagle Scout during ceremonies at Temple Israel in Ridgewood on Sunday.

She is among six girls in the first class of female Eagles from the Northern New Jersey Council serving Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties. Bakal is also the first to earn the rank among 11 girls who formed Troop 933 in March 2019, soon after Scouts BSA, formerly the Boy Scouts, began admitting girls. She had already earned her Gold Award — the highest rank in Girl Scouting  in 2018.

One thought on “Upper Saddle River Teen Becomes Bergen’s First Female Eagle Scout

  1. You mean Boy Scout?
    This means nothing.
    The organization as it stood has been destroyed
    The more than 100-year-old organization said last week it hopes to move forward, but enrollment is spiraling, sponsors are leaving and the devastating sexual abuse scandal is unfortunately only one of the reasons for its decline.
