Haley Singer's memory lives on

Posted: Updated:

The 4th annual Haley Singer golf tournament was held today.

On May 28 2014 Haley was killed when her home exploded.
Newscenter 25's David Gibson attended the memorial tournament and tells us more about the scholarship fund.

With every swing and shot it goes to a good foundation.
"To honor Haley in a good way and being able to leave a legacy for her," says KJ French, Family Friend and Organizer.
That legacy KJ is speaking of was creating a scholarship in Haley's name to send students to Texas tech.
"It helps out with those students who are going to tech from the Victoria area, not just Victoria but the surrounding counties as well," adds French.

Each year the amount of money raised keeps growing, allowing more children the opportunity to
go to college.
"This year we are really excited when we gave out the 21,000, next year we are well planning on giving out 20,000 again," declares French.

If you would like to apply for the scholarship, here's how
"They do it through the alumni association on the website, and it's the Haley singer memorial scholarship throughout the year and we make the decision come March," tells French.

Ansley Murphy, a scholarship winner says it's an honor to receive the support.
"Its really humbling and its honor to be able to win this and to represent Haley and Texas tech as a whole its just a really great feeling," exclaims Ansley Murphy, Recipient of Scholarship.
Haley's mother Mary Helen is thankful her daughter's memory lives on.
"A good way to honor such a beautiful young lady, there is probably no words to express how beautiful she was inside in out and i know she is up there right now is very honored to be able to have her name on something that is helping other kids with education," tells Mary Helen Barrick, Haley's mother.
It's important for Autumn French to show up for the tournament, she says Haley was like family.

"So she was like a big sister to me and her love for tech radiated through her and i think its so great that we are allowed to do something like this and get kids loving tech like she did and getting to see their love for tech radiate through the new students that we are giving the scholarships to," adds Autumn French, Family friend.
Organizers want to thank the community for its continued support.
