In Memory of Reagan Tokes
Posted on 13 February 2017
The YXU community is sending its thoughts and prayers to the family of Reagan Tokes after the 21 year old was kidnapped, fatally shot, and later abandoned in a park outside of Columbus, Ohio last week. The psychology major was scheduled to graduate from Ohio State University this May.
In an attempt to honor Reagan her family has set up a GoFundMe page with the goal of raising $50,000 to set up a scholarship in her name. An excerpt from the page reads:
"This fund is so we no long have to ask why her and make something good, pure and loving; just like Reagan. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to create a scholarship in her honor. This will give other hard working high school students a chance to attend the college of their dreams just like Reagan did. We will also be creating a commemorative plaque that will be placed at the Anthony Wayne Tennis Courts for all the energy and love she put into her teammates and the game. We would like to have this fund accomplished by her funeral on February 16th, 2017."
