Sugar Land's Preston earns Eagle Scout Award
Graham Preston recently earned the Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America.
Graham completed his Eagle Scout Project by designing and installing new shelving in the Band Hall at Stephen F. Austin High School. The new shelves will be used to store awards the band receives.
To be considered to become an Eagle Scout, a candidate must be active in his troop, hold a leadership position, earn at least 21 merit badges (including 12 Eagle-required badges), complete a leadership service project benefiting his local community and receive letters of recommendation. After the Scout works up through the ranks, he performs an Eagle project to develop his leadership skills while providing a community service.
A member of Troop #38, Preston is part of a select group as only four percent of all Boy Scouts attain their Eagle rank. He is in the 11th grade at Stephen F. Austin High School in Fort Bend County.
