Student achieves Eagle Scout rank by renovating building operated by American Legion Post 772 | News

Brock de Beaubien has achieved the highest rank that can be achieved by a Boy Scout, and he did so by providing a valuable service to a local organization.

“I wanted to do something about my Eagle Scout project that had to do with veterans, mainly because my grandfather was a military veteran,” he said. “I’m happy to do it for this reason.”

As a result, at the age of 15, Etiwanda High School student coordinated a major renovation of the building operated by American Legion Post 772 on Spring Street in Fontana.

The personnel of the American Legion highly appreciated his tireless work and held a ceremony in his honor on June 5th.

Also proud of Brock’s contributions were his grandfather Michael Almeraz, his mother Veronica and sister Pressly. Family members have long been residents of Fontana.

For his Eagle Scout project, Brock and his assistants cleared the area at the back of the building, painted the walls and deck, and created a Memorial Wall that includes an American flag and symbols of all branches of the Army as well as the American Legion.

“All members of the American Legion can go out and enjoy this for years to come,” he said. “I am very happy about that.”
