Family, friends keep memory of Franklin students alive with scholarship fund

BARGERSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) –  Family and friends of two Franklin High School students who died last year are keeping their memory alive through a scholarship fund.

In June 2014, Franklin Community High School students Jason Moran and Michael Chadbourne jumped into the dam of the Big Blue River in Edinburgh to save their classmate, Sarah McLevish. The two boys died. McLevish survived but suffered a serious brain injury. Their friends, Mark Nally and Trent Crabb, also went in the water, but they managed to make it out alive.

On Sunday, the Franklin Strong Scholarship Ride was held in Bargersville, the proceeds from the event will go to the scholarship fund named after Moran and Chadbourne.

Three Franklin Community High School grads earned one this spring.

Each scholarship recipient gets $1,000 a year for school.
