When Bayshore High plays at Braden River tonight, the Bruins will remember Jasmine Thompson.
The Golden Regiment will display a new banner in memory of the slain Bruins senior cheerleader. They will do so at every game and throughout marching season, according to band booster president Don Burrow.
The banner, donated by Auto Trim Design, will be signed by all band members and presented to Jasmine’s family at season’s end.
Also, if you’d like to join Dick and Lorraine Vitale in donating to scholarships established in memory of Jasmine and slain Bayshore grad DeJuan Williams, mail donations to:
Memorial Scholarship Fund, Bayshore High School, 5401 34th St. W., Bradenton 34210.
“We want to give them to youngsters who epitomize the kind of people DeJuan and Jasmine were to make sure their legacy goes on,” Dick said.
n The Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation will benefit from two upcoming events.
