Pine Crest School Alumnus Honored by The Urban League of Broward County

Pine Crest School alumnus, Beckton Peddy ’18, was recently recognized with the Civic Leader Award from the Urban League of Broward County.
Beckton was recognized for the Second Life Project, a project he started as a Pine Crest sophomore to collect and refurbish gently used laptops and tablets from local businesses. Once refurbished, the laptops and tablets are donated to underserved middle and high school students in Broward County.


The Urban League is an official partner to the Project ensuring the laptops and tablets are donated to those in need. To date, the Project has donated laptops to more than 200 students.

As a senior, Beckton formed a club of Pine Crest students that will continue the Project next year while he begins his first semester in college.

Congratulations, Beckton!
