— A Decatur church is helping create a scholarship fund for students who were victims of the April 27, 2011, tornadoes.

In an effort to continue to aid those affected by last years tornados, Crosspoint Community Church and North Alabama Tornado Relief have set up a scholarship fund for high schoolers living in the devastated areas. Juniors and graduating seniors who will be attending college in the semester immediately following graduation will be eligible for one of 10 $1,000 scholarships.

Students who meet these requirements should fill out an application and return it to Crosspoint by March 15.  Scholarship awards will be announced on May 1, 2012.
