Boy Scout Leo Rendon Jr., of Robstown, recently completed his Eagle Scout project. The teen is a senior at Robstown High School.
The teen raised all of the money for a monument that is now in place at Centennial Plaza in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Two oak trees represent the Twin Towers, while a five-sided sandstone border represents the Pentagon.
An area of grass represents where Flight 93 came to rest, and a flagpole and bronze plaque on a granite pedestal, pictured at left, represent the nation's strength.
