New Scholarship Memorializes Rustin Graduate After Her Tragic Death

The hopes and dreams of recent West Chester Rustin High School grad Bianca Roberson will live on in a special memorial scholarship.

Someone else will get the chance to anticipate the college education and dream of working with the FBI that was taken from 2017 Rustin High School grad Bianca Roberson during a “senseless act of violence” in June, West Chester School District Superintendent Jim Scanlon said in a Daily Local News report by Bill Rettew.

The school board voted this week to establish a scholarship in memory of Roberson, who was murdered via a road rage-related gunshot on Route 100.

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

A special committee will be collecting donations and may host fundraisers to support the Roberson memorial scholarship, and her family will play a role in determining the criteria by which the scholarship recipients will be chosen.
