Meridian, Mississippi A local church sponsored a basketball tournament to honor the life of a young man while creating a brighter future for other young people.
First Apostolic Church in Meridian hosted the tournament at the Meridian Community College Gymnasium. The event pays tribute to Dennis Huggins, who died in a house fire in 2005. It also raised money for students to attend MCC in the future.
"Two $500 scholarships to go towards their scholarship fund to help pay for their school and tuition and it's just the way we want to give back to the community," Darius Walker explains.
This is the 6th year the church has hosted this fundraiser.
