Eagle Scout Sponsored by Largo Lodge Completes Project

2159 Eagle Scout

Nick Verhunce earned the Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout award earlier this year. Nick is a member of Troop 417 with the Greater Tampa Bay Area Council and was sponsored by Largo Elks Lodge #2159. His Eagle Scout project honored the heritage of the 11 original families who settled in Seminole, Fla., and is located at the entrance of the Seminole Historical Society Museum. The scouts installed engraved pavers and built a monument pedestal including a plaque commemorating these families and their importance for generations to come. They completed the project area with a park bench and landscaping. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the project site as Mayor Leslie Waters and the city of Seminole kicked off their third annual Arts in the Park event. Nick’s accomplishment was also celebrated at his court of honor ceremony with his troop at the Elks lodge.
