CLARKSBURG, W.Va. A scholarship fund has been established in the memory of former Liberty High School journalism teacher and assistant football coach Ryan Lantz. Lantz was hit and killed last week in the parking lot of Liberty High School.

The Ryan Lantz Ridgerunner Scholarship Fund is for Liberty High School seniors. The “Ridgerunner” name pays tribute to the Glenville area, where many of those residents will now be a part of Ryan’s future legacy.

Donations to the fund can be mailed to the Ryan Lantz Ridgerunner Scholarship Fund, 447 Roane Ave., Clarksburg. The City National Bank in Bridgeport and Clarksburg will also accept donations for the fund.

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is May 1.
