Madison, WisconsinEagle Scouts Colin Lancaster, Zach Stoughton, Nick Stoughton, and Drake Schutte from Troop 357 joined their Troop Leader Tom Stoughton today in presenting Governor Walker with a Scouting Alumni specialty license plate. The presentation took place in the Governor’s Office at the Wisconsin State Capitol with friends and family members in attendance.

The plate, which prominently features the number 45, recognizes both Governor Walker’s scouting alumni status as well as his place in history as the 45th Governor of the State of Wisconsin. The plate was introduced by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) last month joining 46 other specialty plate designs.

“I’m honored members from Eagle Scout Troop 357 are here today to present the Scouting Alumni specialty license plate,” Governor Walker said. “My experience as an Eagle Scout taught me the meaning of leadership and how to give back to others. I, like many of my fellow Boy and Eagle Scout Alumni, am proud of my time with the Scouts and look forward to displaying this specialty plate while supporting the Boy Scouts of America at the same time.”

Specialty plates, such as the Scouting Alumni plate, are available for a $15 issuance fee for non-personalized plates and an additional $25 tax-deductible donation which is transferred to the sponsoring organization.  Each year, plate holders pay the annual $25 donation and the regular registration fee. All donations collected from the Scouting Alumni plate, which features a decal for either “Boy Scout” or “Eagle Scout,” will go to the non-profit Boy Scouts of America National Foundation, and will be distributed to local Wisconsin councils.

In addition, motorists may personalize specialty license plates. A $15 personalized plate fee is required each year in addition to the regular annual registration fee and donation. A helpful online tool checks whether the personalization is already in use.
