The Clayton Michael Knode Scholarship Fund Established

The family of Clayton Knode has established the Clayton Michael Knode Scholarship Fund. Intended to be a continued celebration of Clayton’s life, this fund will award scholarships to graduating Washington County students. The fund consists of the many generous donations from the Clear Spring Blazer community and beyond, and also serves as a way for future donations to accumulate for a good cause.

Clayton Michael Knode was gifted to this world June 5, 2006. He is the son of Eric Knode and Kelly Weaver and husband, Chris. He is the proud brother and best friend to Keller and Evelyn Knode and Drake and Allyson Weaver. He is the grandson to Tom and Teresa Fitz of Crystal Spring, PA, Tom and Emily Knode of Clear Spring, MD, and Ronnie and Linda Weaver of Hagerstown, MD.

He is a junior at Clear Spring High School, where he is a proud member of the varsity soccer and basketball teams, proudly wearing the #2.

According to Clayton’s family’s memorial posting, “His smile is warm, his laughter is contagious and his blue eyes are unforgettable. He loves to hug and according to so many, he gives the best hugs. He is kind, always asking his mom and dad how their day was and taking the time for just about anyone to provide encouragement and love. He loves and loves and loves. He is a child of God. He is beautiful and will remain perfect. He will always be our son, our grandchild, our friend, our brother, our teammate. Clayton Michael Knode joined God’s team on August 25, 2022.”

Always asking “How was your day?”, Clayton would unquestionably love to see this fund grow to make a difference in the lives of so many others.
