|WCSO Range hosts Eagle Scout Project: Gets new flag pole and landscaping|
Cody Franklin, 16, of Tallahassee and a member of the Boy Scouts Troop 115 in Tallahassee, created an Eagle Scout project at the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Training Center and Range on Saturday, May 25.
To achieve the final rank of Eagle Scout, the scout must show that he can prove himself through leadership and helping the community.
His next step was to raise the funds necessary to pay for the project and organize the entire operation before going back before the committee a second time On May 25, Cody and his fellow scouts and scout leaders were joined by his parents, Tony and Dawn Franklin, at the range as they completed the project.
Cody was joined by his grandfather Ron Franklin and great-grandmother Frances Franklin as they worked near the blasts of guests using the various sections of the range.
“I just wanted to thank Cody Franklin for his dedication and hard work to get our new flag pole and American Flag at the range,” said Sgt. Evans. “I also wanted to thank Boy Scout Troop 115 for their hard work assisting with the project. It will be nice to see the great job the guys did every day I go to work.”
