After transferring from northern Virginia with his family, Jason Yost remembers as a freshman at Hayward High School arriving at the Town of Hayward Recreational Park for cross country practice and being confused about where he was in the park because there was no map.

A few years later, Yost’s Troop 70 Scoutmaster, Rod Susedik, who is also a Town of Hayward Planning Commission member, suggested Yost create a large visual placard/map for the park for his Eagle Scout project, part of the requirement to attain the highest level of the six ranks in Boy Scouts.
