A journalism scholarship fund set up by the family of Jessica Ghawi, one of the 12 people killed in the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting during a screening of "Dark Knight Rises," has reached its goal of $20,000--a day after a campaign seeking donations was launched.
The Jessica Redfield Sports Journalism Scholarship Fund "will be seed money for the scholarship to help send another upcoming young sports talent to study journalism," according to a website for the campaign.
