A scholarship fund is in the works to honor a Nerinx Hall High School student who passed away last week.
Clare Blase, who had been a freshman at Nerinx Hall in Webster Groves, battled cancer for almost two years. Nerinx Hall altered their finals schedule so students could attend funeral services Wednesday. Patch tracked her participation in Pedal for the Cause earlier this year and watched Twitter erupt with local support for her friends and family after news of Clare's passing.
Pauletta Reed, Nerinx Hall's director of advancement, said they have not met with Clare's family yet to discuss specifically who would benefit from the scholarship. Reed said they plan to do so after the first of the year.
Nerinx Hall is accepting donations for the Clare Blase Memorial Scholarship Fund by mail or on their website.
