School plans scholarship in memory of murdered Md. 11-year-old girl

Salisbury University plans to offer a scholarship in memory of an 11-year-old girl who was abducted and murdered near Christmas.

The Sarah Foxwell Memorial Scholarship Foundation recently signed an agreement on the scholarship with the SU Foundation.

The scholarship will be awarded to students studying social work and priority will be given to Wicomico County residents who show financial need. The first scholarship is expected to be given next fall.

Kim Nechay, the foundation's assistant director, says it's wonderful idea “to turn such a tragedy into such a positive award for Salisbury University students who will strive to prevent this type of tragedy.”

Thomas Leggs Jr. is charged with murder, kidnapping and sex offenses in Foxwell's death. A four-day trial is set to begin May 24.
