The Boynton Lions Club honors Boynton Elementary graduates that exemplify the spirit and character of Catoosa County war hero Major Thomas Duckett. Duckett was reported MIA (missing in action) during the Vietnam War when his fighter jet was shot down. Duckett graduated from Boynton Elementary and Ringgold High schools. Lions Club past president Randall Franks presented the 2020 awards, including $100, to Boynton graduates Cade Green and Addyson Morrison recently on behalf of the club and the North Georgia Electric Membership Roundup Grant. The Boynton Lions Club meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Boynton United Methodist Church.
