Corpus Christi, Texas — The memory of King High School student Jesani Smith, who was killed in April 2019 after being swept into a rip current near Whitecap Beach on Tuesday night, was honored.
A scholarship in his name was distributed to fellow Mustangs.
Daniela Cole was surprised at her home by the people of the Jesani Smith Foundation.
A $ 1200 scholarship will be given to seniors who have graduated from King High School. To be eligible for a scholarship, King’s seniors must write an essay on how to educate others about water safety and rip currents.
Daniela will attend the University of Texas at Austin in the fall. She majors in International Relations and Global Studies.
