NAMEPLATE DATABASE & EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT
Socastee High School student Cole Smith has completed his Eagle Scout project at Myrtle Beach’s Warbird Park. Smith’s Eagle Scout effort had three parts. He first created a searchable database of names on the wall so that people could easily find the actual nameplate on the wall. By adding row and column markers to the wall, as shown in the photo below, he provided a handy cross-reference guide. Here is the link to the searchable nameplate database: https://sites.google.com/view/warbirdpark/wall-of-service.
Working with other Scouts, Smith and his team improved the landscaping throughout the park, trimmed bushes and cleaned feature elements. The final item involved placing QR code markers at certain elements throughout the park. The QR codes take visitors to a series of YouTube videos which Cole produced about the people, places and planes of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base.
