During the September 20 Town Council meeting, Mayor Derek France proclaimed Flower Mound resident Austin Emmons as a Hometown Hero for his military service. Austin graduated from Flower Mound High School in 2020 and soon after enrolled in the United States Navy. He is currently assigned to the Atlantic Fleet Weather Service in Norfolk, Virginia and is studying to enter the US Naval Academy, Class of 2026.
A Hometown Heroes banner depicting Austin was displayed in Flower Mound for more than two months before his family was presented with it last night. Austin’s grandfather, Michael Waite, accepted the banner on Austin’s behalf. Flower Mound’s Hometown Hero Banner program is sponsored by Ad Art Sign Company.
