Austin Gray Cabaniss, a member of Troop 434 in Palm Harbor, earned the Boy Scouts' highest rank of Eagle Scout on Nov. 12.

Cabaniss, 17, is a Palm Harbor native and a senior at Palm Harbor University High School, where he is enrolled in the Center for Wellness and Medical Professions program.

Cabaniss' Eagle service project involved renovating the landscaping in the main parking lot of the Palm Harbor Community Activity Center in preparation for its grand reopening as The Centre.

Austin and a group of volunteers removed existing vegetation in the center parking lot median and around a group of newly planted palm trees. New shrubs, grasses and trees were planted, the entire area was mulched and stepping stones were placed in several areas. Also, a new park bench was donated for additional seating near the building's entrance.

The project required nearly 100 service hours to complete.

Cabaniss is the son of Andrew and Terri Cabaniss of Palm Harbor.
