The Palm Coast Elk's Lodge held an Eagle Scout ceremony for Troupe 270.
Three Boy Scouts from Troupe 270 in Palm Coast earned their Eagle Scouts, the highest achievable rank in the Boy Scouts of America. Tyler Wilsey, Morgan Metz and Casey Leeman, all Flagler Palm Coast High School students, celebrated their achievement at the Palm Coast Elk's Lodge No. 2709 on Sunday, June 9.
Casey Leeman's mother, Lisa Leeman, was overwhelmed with joy as she looked at her son's scout table, which was lined with photos, awards and memorabilia from years of moving up the ranks.
"He's worked so hard," Lisa Leeman said. "I've been with them since Cub Scouts. (Eagle Scouts) is not something that's done very often. It's humbling to know how hard they worked."
Casey Leeman's Eagle Scout project was awarded as the top in the state, she said. His project was a veteran's monument that honors all those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces — past, present and future. The monument construction broke ground outside the Elk's Lodge in 2017, when Casey was an Eagle Scout candidate, and it can still be seen there.
The Elks Club also presented each of the Eagle Scouts with a $1,000 scholarship.
Flagler County Sheriff's Office Chief Paul Bovino spoke at the ceremony and presented the three Eagle Scouts with the FCSO Centennial Challenge Coin.
