A memorial scholarship has been established for a 2013 Bishop Heelan High School graduate who died in a Colorado traffic accident last Tuesday.
The classmates of Josh Lester have created a memorial scholarship in Josh's name to remember and honor their friend.
The scholarship will be used to provide tuition assistance to future Heelan High students who shared Josh's love of life.
Donations for the memorial scholarship can be sent to Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools, 1018 Grandview Blvd, Sioux City, IA 51103.
An Open Mic Music Night will help raise money for the scholarship fund. It will be held at the Sioux City Conservatory of Music this Friday at 6 p.m.
