Congratulations to Florida High School Senior Vincent Palacino on completing his Eagle Scout project which will benefit the Florida Union Free School District and the Main St. corridor in the Village of Florida for many years to come.
Mr. Palacino was able to provide a new, modern LED sign at the entrance to the district offices and the S.S. Seward High School on Main St. at absolutely no cost to the District. Through his dedication to service and leadership he was able to obtain all the materials necessary, including the sign, landscaping material, and labor, as donations.
Mr. Palacino joins an elite group of fellow Eagle Scout recipients which includes former U.S. President Gerald Ford, Associate Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, and Astronaut Neil Armstrong. This is a project the entire community can be proud of and one that Mr. Palacino can take pride in.
I would encourage all members of the community to stop by and take a look at the results of his hard work and dedication. When you see Mr. Palacino, shake his hand and say thank you for a job well done; there can never be enough true leaders. Thank you, Vincent, for your selflessness, your compassion your service, and your leadership as you prepare to graduate. May you always find success.
