Thompson said almost 1,000 students will receive $2,000 in scholarships and a laptop computer.”It’s a really positive thing we are trying to do,” Thompson said. “We’re hoping to get support from the community and corporate sponsors so we can continue the scholarships.”Police have yet to charge anyone with the legendary DJ’s killer and are probing several motives for his shooting death.
