KIEL (AP) -- A Baraboo couple has established a scholarship honoring a Wisconsin soldier killed in the Nov. 5 Fort Hood shootings.
Tom and Cheryl Hayes never met Staff Sgt. Amy Krueger or her family. But they felt a special connection when they found out she'd been studying psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
Tom Hayes is a psychologist from UW-Whitewater. He says he'd been meaning to establish a scholarship, and Krueger's death spurred him to action.
The Sheboygan Press says the Amy Krueger Memorial Scholarship will provide $500 each year to a UW-Whitewater psychology major, with preference given to a student in the Armed Forces.
Jeri Krueger says the Hayes are "wonderful, wonderful people" for keeping her daughter's memory alive.
