Scholarship established in name of road rage victim

WEST GOSHEN TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- A scholarship has been established in the name of a local college-bound high school graduate who was killed in a road rage shooting last month in Chester County.

The West Chester Area School District said the school board approved the creation of the Bianca Roberson Scholarship Fund at its meeting this week.

Roberson graduated from Rustin High School earlier this year and was set to attend Jacksonville University in Florida this fall.

"There is nothing we can do to bring her back but to honor her memory," said School Board President Chris McCune.
