Autism Doesn't Stop This Eagle Scout

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Like 1,029 other Minnesota Boy Scouts, Joe Keely earned the rank of Eagle Scout last year.
At the Many Point Boy Scout camp near Park Rapids, he was feted with the traditional Court of Honor ceremony: candle-lighting, reciting of the Eagle pledge and awarding of the Eagle badge.
There was chocolate cake. Joe's mom cried. All in all, a typical Eagle ceremony, except for this: Joe Keely is autistic.
