Eagle Scout Project Donation

Porter Archibald and Parents

As part of his Eagle Scout project, Porter Archibald of Kaysville, raised nearly a $1,000, with a 10% donation match by Walmart, to provided clothing for Washington Elementary's school store. Washington students earn school money for attendance and completing responsibilities each day. Every other Friday students attend the school store to spend their money. We appreciate this generous donation by Porter, and want him to know that it will be put to good use. Porter is pictured here with his parents, Allen and Shannon Archibald.
