The corps' name derives from its close association with the Boy Scouts of America. A Court of Honor is a formal BSA awards ceremony.
Corps executive director Marc Kaufman has taken the decision to cap membership age, limiting corps membership to high school students who will rehearse and perform on weekends and around hometown jobs.
Court of Honor's first ever competition took place on June 23, 2003, in Kennesaw, Georgia. The corps finished second in Division III there, with a score of 45.30. In DCI Championships week, the 44-member corps finished a respectable 20th in their first Division II/III competition, dressed in Navy and white, with white helmets and sparkling blue plumes. One industrious corps member doubled on contra and bass drum in that 2003 show. The 2003 tympani player, Allee Davis, performed even though blind.
In a novel cost containment move, the corps leased instruments from the 21st Century Foundation rather than buying. One third of the horns are rotated back to the leasor every year.
The group continued to benefit from official government support when a Resolution in the Georgia General Assembly commended the corps for this inaugural year's accomplishments and its representation of the state across the country.
Court of Honor's 2004 show, called "Seuss-ational!", moved the young corps up to fourth place in Division III Finals.
