The University of Central Arkansas will host a memorial candlelight vigil in honor of Ryan Henderson and Chavares Block at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the memorial garden in front of Arkansas Hall.
The campus and community are invited to attend.
Henderson and Block were victims of an on-campus shooting that occurred Oct. 26, 2008. In 2009, the students of the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC) established a memorial scholarship fund. One male student from Dermott High school and Hall High school will receive a $1,000 scholarship each year.
To raise funds for this scholarship, NPHC will sell purple rubber bracelets for $5 in the Student Center next week. The bracelets are imprinted with Ryan and Chavares’ initials and the anniversary date, Oct. 26, 2008.
Those who would like to donate to the scholarship fund, shouold make checks payable to the UCA Henderson/Block Fund and sent to the Office of Student Life, Student Center 207 or mailed directly to: UCA Foundation, 201 Donaghey Ave., UCA Box 4986, Conway, Ark., 72035.
