UNION SPRINGS, Ala. (AP) - The family of a dead Union Springs teenager is looking to keep his memory alive by giving to other students through a scholarship fund.

WAKA-TV (https://bit.ly/1EY7swp) reports the family of 13-year-old Ka’shaad Hurts started a scholarship fund in the boy’s name. Union Springs teachers selected two eighth graders and one high schooler for scholarships this year.

Hurts was found dead on Valentine’s Day 2014. Police say his death was a suicide.

Krystall Hurts, Ka’Shaad’s mother, says her son loved to help people and the scholarship fund will help the next student further their education to keep his name alive.

The family hopes to grant more scholarships next year.
