Seacoast National Bank sponsors local Eagle Scout project

Seacoast National Bank is once again pleased to support a local Life Scout in his quest to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, the group’s highest rank and achievement, by sponsoring the Eagle Project recently conducted by Andrew Weisbrot to restore and refurbish the Indian Mound Cemetery in Indiantown, Florida.

“This is a wonderful project for Seacoast to support,” said Eileen Hatt, Senior Vice President, Retail Area Manager South Region. “We are delighted to help this young man achieve a level of service that is very difficult in the scouting world, and at the same time, help the community by restoring this important land mark in Indiantown.”

Weisbrot lead a group of 40 volunteers to refurbish and renew the cemetery. “This cemetery is very important to the town of Indiantown because of its historical background,” said Weisbrot. “The cemetary was used during the Jim Crowe Laws and segregation; it was one of few African-American cemeteries on the Treasure Coast.” Appropriately, the project was conducted during Black History Month.

Funds raised for the project were used for new graves, mulch, fencing and well repair. Weisbrot received grant money from Keep Martin Beautiful in addition to the support from Seacoast National Bank.
