Kaleb Cole and James Leishman

Kaleb Cole and James Leishman (pictured, from left) from Troop 125, sophomores at Lamar High School, recently became Eagle Scouts. Both developed their Eagle Scout projects based on experiences during Hurricane Harvey. Kaleb’s father, Richard Cole, is a district chief with the Houston Fire Department and completed many water rescues during Harvey. Kaleb was inspired to mark street signs in the Meyerland area with reflective tape to help notify firefighters of water depths in high-risk flood zones. James’ family had adopted a cat from Friends for Life, a no-kill animal shelter. James, knowing that many animals were displaced after Harvey, organized a donation drive in his neighborhood to support Friends for Life. He collected over 500 cans of pet food.
