Death Row Inmates' College Scholarship Program

From the  "A college student whose younger sister was murdered more than a decade ago was presented Tuesday with a scholarship from an unlikely source _ death row inmates from around the country.  Zach Osborne was only 6 years old, and his sister, Natalie, was 4 when she was raped and murdered in 1992. Their mother's boyfriend, Jeff Kandies, is on North Carolina's death row for the crime.  On Tuesday, Osborne, 19, received a $5,000 college scholarship from the group of inmates who solicited money through their bimonthly publication "Compassion." Including Osborne's grant, they have given out seven scholarships worth about $27,000."  Story . . . [Mark Godsey]
