A former trustee who served for 35 years has a school in Haliburton with his name.

The Haliburton Alternate Education and Training Centre is now the Leonard Salvatori Alternate Education Centre.

Salvatori spent over 40 years as both a scouts leader and minor hockey representative.

He says he encourages younger generations to volunteer.

The 87 year old Salvatori says he still volunteers when he can at the fish hatchery in Haliburton.

The school is next to Haliburton Highlands Secondary School.
