Parkway School now enjoys five new picnic tables and several that have been repaired thanks to the Eagle Scout Project of Aaron Williams (front row, second from left). Williams and Boy  Scouts Troop 100 (most of which is pictured above) completed the project after investing 124 person hours of labor. Materials for the project were donated by New River Building Supply, Blue Ridge Supply & Millworks, and Watauga Building Supply.  “The Troop did such an outstanding job and their work has provided our students with safe and comfortable places to sit outside,” said Parkway Principal Melissa Costin. ” One of the special things about Parkway is how our parents, volunteers, and the business community work together for the school.  This project is a perfect example of that type of collaboration.”
As part of the PTO at Parkway, I am very thankful for this Eagle Scout and his group. When he first approached us at the end of last school year, we all were thrilled of this great news. I wanted to shed light and give thanks to all of the boys’ hard work. This was a much needed project and each one of the boys stepped up to the plate and completed it. Job well done boys!
