Jaren Preston of Windham held his Eagle Scout ceremony at Camp Hinds in Raymond last week. Preston earned the highest rank in Boy Scouts at the age of 14, a feat not commonly accomplished.
“I feel proud,” Preston said. “I was a Webelos and one night coming out of a meeting I decided I wanted to earn my Eagle before I turned 15.”
Preston and his team built a 112-foot walkway over marshy areas at Donnabeth Lippman Park in Windham as his Eagle project.
Preston is a freshman at Windham High School and is the son of Melissa and Paul Preston.
“It’s awesome to get Eagle. It’s better to set and meet goals,” he concluded.
