Milken Graduate earns Eagle Scout badge for library fundraising effort
Michael Bock, an 18-year-old graduate from Milken Community High School, poses in front of the newly built children’s library at the Hope Street Family Center. Bock raised $17,000 and coordinated a team of 36 volunteers that constructed the 200-square-foot multicolored library on June 12. The project earned Bock his Eagle Scout badge, the highest award in the Boy Scouts of America. The library provides local children and families in the Pico-Union neighborhood access to more than 3,320 books.
