    Last month, Shane Anderson's family set up a scholarship for Broken Arrow High School students in his honor.

    The geography teacher lost his life last October when he was shot and killed protecting his family during a home invasion.

    Anderson taught at Oneta Ridge Middle School since 2013.

    Kristal Shanahan, Anderson's cousin, created a memorial scholarship in his name.

    The Shane Anderson Memorial Scholarship is open to a Broken Arrow High School student with a GPA of 3.2 or above and planning on attending the University of Oklahoma, Anderson's alma mater.

    Applications must be turned in to the College and Career Office, Main 122, by Thursday, March 15.

    If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, please address donations to The Shane Anderson Memorial Scholarship, Attn: Donna Dollahon, 701 S. Main Street, Broken Arrow, OK 74012.

    Checks should be made out the Broken Arrow Public Schools Gift Fund. Put Shane Anderson Memorial Scholarship on the memo line.

    There is no base amount from BAPS, so Shanahan says it is donation based only and any amount is helpful.

    The scholarship awards ceremony is May 11.
