Life Scout Zac Hall is near the pinnacle of his years as a Boy Scout. The youth, along with support from Troop 450, presented a 9/11 memorial that stands at the Five Cities Fire Authorities’ main station on Traffic Way. The venture is an Eagle Scout Community Service Project — a necessary step in becoming an Eagle Scout.
Hall, a sophomore at Central Coast New Tech High, created the project to represent the Twin Towers, enclosed in a shape of the Pentagon, that were attacked by terrorists in the tragic incident in 2001.
“When I started this project, I never realized how deeply this event affected all Americans,” Hall said. “I was born after 9/11, but even I have been impacted by the stories of the heroes of that day.”
The fire station also donated a piece of steel from Ground Zero to the memorial that is anchored in concrete and surrounded by bricks matching the fire house and installed next to the flagpole.
