Youth Resources starts scholarship fund after former WFIE employ - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports

Scholarship fund will honor former WFIE employee

14 News lost a member of our news family this week, and a local charity is announcing a scholarship fund in his honor.

Scooter Tiemann worked at WFIE for more than two years beginning in 2005. Scooter died on Monday in Texas from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

He spent years in Evansville mentoring at-risk kids through Youth Resources' Teen Power program, even donating his own money so kids could participate.

The organization wants to give back so more children can attend.

"We wanted to turn this around and remember Scooter's legacy by establishing a fun that will allow at-risk youth to come for free, so the money will go directly to those youth that he loved serving," says Ann Burnworth.

Scooter leaves behind a wife of only three weeks.

If you know anyone who would be interested in supporting Scooter's legacy, please let them know they can make checks out to 'Youth Resources,' and in the memo, please write 'Scooter's Scholarship Fund.' Payment through Paypal online is also available through Youth Resources' website.

Youth Resource envelopes will also be available at Browning Funeral Home on Sunday.
