Scholarship named in honor of homicide victim

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_A talent show benefit for Stefan Rushing, the victim of a recent shooting, is scheduled to go on despite the arrest of the suspected killer in the case, his own brother. 

Stefan's classmates planned the talent show this week in his memory in order to help with his and his father's funeral costs. 

 

The victim's family says that has already been taken care of, so now they plan on using the money to fund a scholarship in Stefan's name.

They say Stefan was an honor student who deeply cared about his academics. The benefit will take place February 1st from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Great Plains Coliseum Annex.

They have enough talent signed up for the show but are still in need of donations for raffle prizes and concessions.  If you'd like to help you can contact Tanna Ferrell at 580-704-0066.
