Boy Scout Troop 428 honors three new Eagle Scouts

Whitman, Hughes and Weatherly reach the rank after after completing projects to benefit local parks

Boy Scout Troop 428 celebrated three of its own who achieved the Eagle Scout rank with a ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 26. 

Eagle Scouts Ben Whitman, Parker Hughes and Evan Weatherly have been in the Scouting program together since they joined as Tiger Cubs in kindergarten. They reached the highest rank in Boy Scouting within a few months of each other this year, upon the completion of their individual Eagle Scout projects.

The City of Hollister is the beneficiary of all three projects as all three worked with Management Services Director, Mike Chambless, to coordinate the installation of their respective projects. 

Hughes managed the building of a shade structure at Klauer Park, Weatherly managed the building of a shade structure at Vista Park Hill and Whitman managed the installation of four park benches at Brigantino Park.

All three boys are seniors in area high schools. 



Brenda Weatherly is executive director of Hollister Downtown Association and mother of Evan Weatherly.
