WBTU-FM Organizes Scholarship Fund
Oasis Radio 1 Group’s WBTU-FM in Fort Wayne, Ind. set up a scholarship fund in honor of Alina Bigjohnny. Bigjohnny and six others lost their lives on August 13 when a stage at the Indiana State Fair collapsed moments before the Sugarland concert. The "Lights for Alina" scholarship fund will be awarded to a student from Bigjohnny’s alma mater whose career focus is education. Alina was a graduate of Wayne High School and soon-to-be teacher at Muncie Community Schools. WBTU-FM also helped organize a memorial event in the week after the tragedy. A video of the remembrance is available online.
