The legacy of Reagan Tokes will live on at Ohio State through a scholarship fund established in her name.
The Reagan Delaney Tokes Memorial Foundation, set up by her parents following her death, will donate $50,000 to the university to fund a scholarship.
The gift is meant to “honor her legacy, her kind giving heart, and her love of life, others, and of Ohio State,” according to Board of Trustee documents.
The scholarship is intended for undergraduate students, with preference for those majoring in psychology, which was Tokes’ major.
Her memorial foundation’s website says, “Through this memorial fund, multiple ongoing scholarship opportunities are awarded annually so motivated students like Reagan who wish to pursue their dream of a college education are supported to do so.”
Tokes was set to graduate last May before being kidnapped and killed by Brian Golsby, who is currently awaiting trial.
At the graduation ceremony, Tokes was posthumously honored with a degree.
The scholarship fund in her name was approved by the Board’s Advancement Committee. It is pending full Board approval Friday.
