Local Scout earns Eagle Scout rank with community service project

BONSALL – Leo Preston, 15, of Bonsall received the Eagle Scout award, the highest rank in Scouting Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Oceanside First Presbyterian Church. Preston is a member of Scout Troop 731 in Fallbrook with Scoutmaster David Creamer.

Preston earned the award by completing his service project that involved building a combination planter and bench for the Fallbrook Land Conservancy. The purpose of it was to provide seating under a rare Catalina cherry tree and to create a planter area around the tree.

Preston is a sophomore at Bonsall High School and serves as his class vice president. He is an honor student and his intention is to be a virologist and cure diseases like his hero, Jonas Salk. Leo enjoys playing tennis and the violin.

"I thank my Scoutmaster, David Creamer especially," Preston said. "Scouting has taught me many valuable skills and values that I will carry with me throughout my life."
