Covington Catholic High School announced Thursday that they are establishing an endowed Maria Schaffstein Memorial Scholarship for the students of the school.
Schaffstein was killed in a car crash in 2010 while she was a senior at Notre Dame Academy.
In response to the tragedy, the Covington Catholic chamber choir was moved to record a memorial CD entitled "To Where You Are." The album has sold nearly 1000 copies, raising $10,000 in funds.
Maria's parents, John & Eileen, attended an all school mass on Thursday to formally announce the scholarship and express their ongoing gratitude to the community for reaching out in honor of their daughter.
