Bruce Preston nominated Western Maryland trustee

Bruce H. Preston of Baltimore has accepted a nomination to join the Board of Trustees at Western Maryland College.

Mr. Preston, vice president of acquisitions and development with Mid-Atlantic Realty Trust, is a 1975 graduate of Western Maryland. He earned a master's degree from Towson State University in 1984.

While at Western Maryland, Mr. Preston was a star lacrosse player and received the Felix Woodbridge Morley Memorial Award as the outstanding freshman in 1972. After graduation, he became an active volunteer for the college and served in several leading roles, including a four-year term on the Alumni Board of Governors.

Mr. Preston began his professional career with Fair Lanes Inc., a national recreational corporation best known for its ownership of bowling centers. After serving as market planning and research manager, he was promoted in 1980 to director of new locations.

In 1984, he joined BTR Realty, a real estate development firm, as a project developer and later became vice president of the development division with responsibility for management of project development including design, construction and leasing. BTR converted to a real estate investment trust in 1993 to form Mid-Atlantic Realty Trust.

A licensed real estate broker in Maryland, Mr. Preston also holds the designation of Certified Leasing Specialist with the International Council of Shopping Centers, one of only 170 certifications nationally.

He is married to the former Patrice Michele Price, who received her master's degree in education from Western Maryland and teaches third grade at McDonogh School in Baltimore County. They have two children.

Mr. Preston's nomination to the board is effective immediately, and he will attend the February trustee meeting.
