In this elected role, he has a long list of important responsibilities including planning school-wide events and activities, exemplifying school spirit, overseeing budgets, and much more. In addition to ASB, Preston’s senior year also includes International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement classes as well as other extra-curricular activities such as golf. In his free time, he works part-time at a local golf course and enjoys spending time with his family and friends.

Following graduation and beginning in Fall 2023, Preston hopes to attend the University of Pennsylvania or the University of California, Los Angeles to study neuroscience and take pre-med courses. He has a strong support system behind him with his mom, Jae, dad, Jim, and two siblings—Rachel and Arlen. Arlen is a fellow Tiger at Valencia, too!

The district is incredibly pleased that Preston has agreed to serve as the Student Board Member during his final semester in PYLUSD. Congratulations, Preston!
