. - A Wiregrass Boy Scout is on a mission to achieve the Eagle Scout rank and save lives all at the same time. Dale Chambers is partnering with Wallace Community College Nursing Students for his Eagle Scout project to benefit 'Be The Match'.

Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Cherry Hall on the WCC campus, you have the opportunity to come and donate tissue. With the just a swab of your cheek you will be entered in the national bone marrow registry.

"Well I think it is a great honor to save somebody's live, and you know, it is a once in a lifetime chance to do that so I think that this is a good project," Chambers said.

They will be also receiving donations for the Be The Match Foundation. ?
