Wyatt Robert Mathews, son of Bob and Darcy Mathews, has earned the rank of Eagle Scout, which will be presented in Court of Honor ceremonies in the fall at the Hope Center in Pleasant Hill.
He is a member of Boy Scout Troop 277 under the leadership of Scoutmaster Don Hinton.
For his Eagle community service project -- earned during the 100-year anniversary of the first Eagle ever presented -- Mathews designed and constructed a four-posted sign board at Pleasant Oaks Park that will be used for posting fliers on upcoming events around Pleasant Hill. Ashby Lumber donated much of the materials, and Scouts provided 165 hours of labor to complete the project.
Mathews served as Patrol Leader, Instructor and Troop Quartermaster during his Scouting years, and his favorite annual event was Pioneering weekend where Scouts build suspension bridges, towers or other structures out of poles and ropes.
He donated more than 200 hours of community service collecting for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, cleaning up creeks on Earth Day and helping other Scouts on their Eagle Scout projects.
Mathews, 18, is a senior at College Park High School and a resident of Pleasant Hill.
