| Eagle Scout collects items for US troops
Sumner Houston, 18, a member of St. Raymond Parish in Dublin, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award of the Boy Scouts of America. The De La Salle High School student will receive his Eagle Award at a May 25 ceremony at the San Ramon Golf Club in San Ramon.
Houston's community service project involved collecting care and comfort items for US troops in Afghanistan. More than 6,000 items were collected and donated to the Blue Star Moms, who delivered the items.
Houston joined Troop 84 of the Mount Diablo Silverado Council in 2005. He earned 28 merit badges.
He is a two-way starter at defensive and offensive line for the four-time defending California state football champions, De La Salle Spartans. He is the son of Guy and Inge Houston and brother of Glynnis Rose, a freshman at Carondelet High School, and Bart, a freshman at the University of Wisconsin.
