A new scholarship will honor a Galena, Ill., educator who died from injuries sustained in a car wreck in December.

The Sandra Zink Memorial Scholarship was created by the Galena Federation of Teachers and the Community Foundation of Jo Daviess County as a way to honor her, according to a post on the foundation’s Facebook page.

The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to Galena High School students who have an interest in pursuing science or education studies.
