Sandy Waybourn Stands Behind The Scholarship Soap Display.

Customers coming to the counter at Soaps on Main will notice a wood cross with fragrant and colorful blocks of soap arranged there. Shop owners Mike and Sandy Waybourn, with input from Casey's mom and Paco's dad, designed a special soap to represent each teen. The Waybourns also designed a special orange and black Aztec Strong soap. Each bar of soap costs $6. The proceeds from the sale of these three soaps will be split between the #AZTECSTRONGSJC scholarship fund started by Casey's family, and the Paco Fernandez Anti-bullying Foundation started by Paco's dad, which is in the process of becoming an official non-profit organization.

Mike Waybourn initially contacted Paco's dad and Casey's mom because he wanted to place a memorial bench for Paco and Casey near Aztec Feed and Supply. When he met them they were working on fundraisers for their memorial scholarships. This inspired Mike to help them raise funds, and he came up with the soap idea.

While the soaps are already for sale, don't expect to buy the first bar; Waybourn already gave the first bar of Casey's soap to her mom and the first bar of Paco's soap to his dad.
