Fund Set Up for Family of Boy Injured at School

The Beaufort County School District will have counselors at Robert Smalls Middle School to help students and teachers coping with their sorrow over a student who was critically injured last week.

Matthew Walls remains in critical condition at a Charleston Hospital. School officials say Walls and another boy were horsing around on their way to lunch when Walls fell and hit his head.

On Friday, the school suspended a student for five days pending the outcome of a disciplinary hearing that's scheduled for Thursday.

Matthew Walls' friends have set up a fund in his name to help the family with expenses. If you'd like to help, stop by any Palmetto State Bank to make a donation to the Matthew Walls fund.
