Supporters of Philando Castile gathered at his high school to celebrate his life, and to also create a scholarship in his name.
“We all had a lot of rage and anger and grief, and we decided to channel that.”

The scholarship has raised over $25,000, and will go to an underprivileged student who plans to study education or childcare.
“[Castile] worked at a school, didn’t have his education license, but he definitely affected children, so we’d like someone to work on what he was: helping students,”
We are happy to see that something positive is coming out of such a negative event.
