Fund started in honor of fallen Rattler

The Florida A&M women’s basketball team is forming a scholarship in honor of Shannon Washington, a former member of the team who was killed in early September.

Head coach LeDawn Gibson said the scholarship is to pay homage to the fallen Rattler.

“She’s a Rattler,” Gibson said. “When she signed on the dotted line she was a part of the Rattler family. We take care of our family.”
