ECU scholarship established in memory of Jeremy Harrel

Pauls Valley —  

A scholarship in memory of Jeremy Harrel has been established for a Pauls Valley High School senior who plans to attend East Central University.

Harrel, who was an ECU sophomore majoring in business, died in a car wreck Dec. 6, 2011, and, with the one-year anniversary of his passing approaching, friends, family and the ECU Foundation have established a memorial scholarship in his honor.

He was a Pauls Valley High School graduate but also attended Ada High School and Byng High School. His passion was athletics, as he was involved in several sports. Harrel was described as a natural-born competitor and wanted to excel in everything from recreational softball to college algebra.

After graduation from Pauls Valley High, he attended Oklahoma State University his freshman year. He was a life-long OSU Cowboys fan and was able to live his dream of attending school there before coming "home" to ECU.

Harrel, who was noted for his remarkable ability to make people smile and laugh, was well-liked and a positive influence to everyone. He also spent a lot of time with friends and made a permanent mark on all of their lives.

Donations can be made to the ECU Foundation, 1100 E. 14th, Ada, OK 74820.
