Steven Whitfield Scholarship Fund

$2,820 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 56 people in 30 months
Our classmate Steven Whitfield passed away suddenly on March 31, 2016 while training to become a firefighter for the Houston Fire Department. Several classmates have expressed a desire to ban together and show how much we loved Steven. Our goal is to purchase a flower arrangement for his services and then whatever money is left over will be donated in Steven's name to a cause that can be agreed upon by those who donate (ideas include fire dept in Bastrop or Houston... BHS... charity of the families choosing) please comment as to where you desire the extra money to be donated.

Steven's family has chosen to give the remaining money as a scholarship to a basketball player at Bastrop High School. The details of who will receive it and when it will be presented are in the works. I was originally going to close the gofundme but since it's for a scholarship I will keep it open until the money has been awarded.

You guys are amazing! Over $2,000 in just over 12 hours! I'm amazed to see how much support (although I shouldn't be) this campaign has gotten. Most of you are on the class of 2002 Facebook page and have seen the poll but for those of you who aren't it was a landslide vote for the money to be donated to a charity chosen by the Whitfields. I have reached out to his sister and am waiting to hear back as to where they would like the money to go. Will update soon!

The rest should go to his family to cover any other expenses and a patch at HFD in his name.

He has been a teacher/coach for some time as well. I agree with where the group decides remaining funds should be donated either way.
