RICHMOND, Va. — As part of his project to become an Eagle Scout, high school student Auggie Bryan has been working to help clean up and restore a historically Black cemetery in Richmond.

Bryan spent months planning and working with Woodland Cemetery to build a memorial for 82 Black veterans' headstones.

CBS 6 Reporter Maggi Marshall surprised Bryan with a gift to put towards the cost of supplies for the project.

CBS 6 Month of Giving is made possible with help from our friends at Virginia Credit Union.
