Western Connecticut State University has set up a scholarship in honor of one of the young victims of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Ana Grace Marquez-Greene, age 6-and-1/2, was the daughter of WCSU music professor Jimmy Greene and the school has set up the Ana Grace Marquez-Greene Music Scholarship Fund.

“Ana's love for singing was evident before she was even able to talk. In a musical family, her gift for melody, pitch and rhythm stood out remarkably. And she never walked anywhere - her mode of transportation was dance. She danced from room to room and place to place. She danced to all the music she heard, whether in air or in her head. Ana loved her God, loved to read the Bible and loved to sing and dance as acts of worship. We ask that you pray for the legions of people who are left behind to cherish memories of her. We also ask that you, like Ana, commit selfless acts of kindness to all those around you. Maybe, in some way, through love, similar senseless acts of violence could be prevented," the family said in a statement.
