Ecker memorial scholarship presented

June 01, 2009

Ashley Rea of North Hagerstown High School received the inaugural award of the Christine Ecker Memorial Scholarship through the Community Foundation of Washington County MD Inc.

The scholarship was established by Christine's parents, Karen and Charles Ecker, to benefit participants in cheerleading programs at North High who plan to pursue a career in early childhood development or education, dreams left unfulfilled by Christine's death last year.

As part of her application for the scholarship, Rea wrote an essay filled with her enthusiasm for life, cheering and plans to become a teacher in a work that Karen Ecker described as "exactly like Christine."
