Memorial Fund Created for Fallen William B. Travis Vanguard Student



    Students and teachers at William B. Travis Academy in Dallas are having a hard time coping with the loss of 13-year-old Ethan Vasquez, the boy who was killed in a hit-and-run crash Tuesday.

    Memorial fund has been created by students at William B. Travis Vanguard and Academy to collect money for the family of their fallen classmate and friend, Ethan Vasquez.

    The 13-year-old boy died in a crash on Tuesday after a man driving a stolen minivan struck the vehicle Vasquez's mother was driving. The mother, Sandy Vasquez, was found in critical conditions and transported to a hospital in Dallas. Her son, Ethan, was found dead at the scene of the crash.

    Ethan's school has created a memorial account called "Friends of Travis." This account has been established to help the Vasquez family pay for Ethan's funeral, medical expenses, and maybe a memorial at the school.

    Anyone who wishes to make donations can do so by placing money in a collection box that can be found in the front office of the school. For those who don't assist the school, donations can be sent through mail to the following address.

    Friends of Travis
    William B. Travis Vanguard and Academy
    3001 McKinney Ave.
    Dallas, Texas 75204

    Donations can be made in cash or check. Checks must be made out to "Friends of Travis." This memorial fund operates independently of the William B. Travis PTA and Dallas Independent School District.
