Andrew Hoadley’s Eagle Project

The Wolf tree was the only one in the middle of a pasture and dates back to over 150 years so it grew substantially over that time. [Courtesy photo)


With the help of the SSNSC and the Talking Information Center, Hoadley developed the Tupelo Trail for Blind Hikers. The trail features series of posts that detail the natural surroundings for those with and without visual impairments by including both written and braille texts for hikers.

Ryan Conforti built a boat rack to benefit of the Cohasset Maritime Institute and the Center for Student Coastal Research. The structure, made of pressure-treated lumber, can hold up to eight boats and can accommodate several kinds of boats such as kayaks, canoes, single rowing boats, and double rowing boats.

Conforti said he and his designated Eagle Advisor, Phil Lehr, remained in constant contact for weeks on end as the two attempted to complete the project before Conforti departed for college on Aug. 18. With the help of Lehr and some of his brother’s friends, Conforti completed the project on Aug. 13, with just days to spare.

Brent Landquist’s Eagle Project

Eagle Scout Brent Landquist, 18, built a new work bench for the glass recycling shed at the RTF off Cedar Street. Landquist built the
bench in eight hours with the help of nine others. Landquist decided to build the bench for his project because he noticed the DPW
needed a new table as the old one was rusted and had exposed nails. (Wicked Local Staff Photo/Alyssa Stone]


Brent Landquist said the decision to build a new work bench for the Recycle Transfer Facility came after spending large chunks of time at the RTF bottle return station, where Troop 28 would raise funds for trips and other troop activities, and noticing the poor condition the previous work bench was in.

To ensure the bench lasts as long as possible, Landquist used special types of wood that would extend the life span of the piece. Landquist said the quality of the tools used back when the previous bench was constructed 30 years ago are not nearly as (good) as tools are now, and that the new bench should last for close to 70 years.

With the help of his Eagle advisor Ed Gibbons, his father Bill and the volunteers from Troop 28, a 12-piece, red oak desk now proudly sits in the 143 TV studio where it exists not just for high school students, but for the whole town.

The desk also features a green circle on the main portion of the desk that acts as a green screen, allowing it to take on any logo necessary. Tierney said the green screen logo piece is one of his favorite parts of the project.
