High School is full of responsibility: sports, school council, driver's licenses --- oh, and school work.
But for Sawyer High School Sophomore Preston Miller, a little extra makes it all worth it.
Preston collected 2,000 books through the spring semester, enough to furnish two primary school libraries in Sierra Leone.
He partnered with the non-profit organization called 'The African Library Project' and with the help of his community, school council and Our Lady of Grace Perish --- Preston doubled his goal.
The 2,000 books are packaged for Africa.
An additional 2,000 books were collected for older reading levels --- that set of books will be donated locally.
This isn't the first time Preston has taken on a charitable project.
His freshman year, he collected more than 900 pairs of shoes for the Soles4Souls Souls for Soles organization.
(Preston Miller, Sawyer High School Sophomore) "Set the example for others. I hope that's what I'm doing here with these drives. Set the example for the school and future generations and hopefully help this community out."
Preston's father served in the Air Force for 26 years and Preston hopes to follow in his footsteps.
His goal is to be accepted to the Air Force Academy to train to be an engineer.
He's also competed internationally - twice - with science fair projects the past two years.
