Making a stand: Eagle Scout builds needed equipment for T.K. Martin Center
from The Dispatch
Dressed in his scouting uniform, 15-year-old Eagle Scout Simon Banzhaf arrived at T.K. Martin Center in Starkville, Mississippi, Aug. 9 after school to assemble the center's platform swing with its new stand — a proud moment for him and his father George, as the two of them had made the stand themselves to help out the center. It was the final step in a long process for the Troop 45 member and sophomore at Starkville Academy, whose first thought when deciding what to do for his Eagle Scout project was to work with T.K. Martin, a Mississippi State University-based center that assists special needs individuals. One of the center's programs is a preschool for children with disabilities — one of those children being a family friend of the Banzhafs.
