Scholarship being created for Dublin Coffman sophomore who died unexpectedly

A GoFundMe has been set up to create a scholarship in honor of the Dublin Coffman high schooler who died suddenly.

Andrew Morales lost consciousness during a band practice on March 5 and was taken to Dublin Methodist Hospital where they tried to revive him but were unsuccessful.

This Week News reports Morales was quiet and very determined to his music.

A vigil was held at Dublin Coffman on March 8 during which his mother, Evelia Morales, told her son’s former bandmates that he will always be there, playing right beside them.

Donations made to the GoFundMe will go towards a scholarship to be awarded to a student with a 3.75+ GPA pursuing a music degree at a university.

This scholarship will embody Morales’ commitment and love for marching band and academics.

So far, about $1,500 has been raised with a total goal of $10,000.
