A scholarship fund has been created in the name of Demitri Hampton, the Riverside man who was shot and killed during a home invasion on Jan. 27.

The DQH scholarship Fund had been founded by Demitri’s mother, Juanita Trent and will be awarded to Riverhead High School students who are attending Suffolk Community College, according to Sharetta Sims, who announced the scholarship at Tuesday’s Riverhead Town Board meeting.

She also announced a May 18 fundraiser for the scholarship called the First Annual DQH Memorial Picnic and 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament. It will be held at the Ludlam Avenue Park in Riverside from 2 to 8 p.m.

“Demitri was a very strong willed young man whose love for his family conquered all,” a release from Ms. Trent announcing the scholarship said. “Demitri was attending Suffolk Community College, Eastern Campus, studying criminal justice. He was scheduled to graduate May 2013. Demitri was also an aspiring actor and comedian. His love for his family and friends is what made him truly special. He was always pushing the people around him to do better and do more. For this reason we, Demitri’s family and friends, have created the DQH Scholarship Fund.”

Ms. Trent is asking local businesses to help the cause by either making a donation to the DQH Scholarship Fund or by donating an item to be raffled off.

“These donations will help others fulfill a dream that was snatched away from Demitri,” his mother wrote.

The donations are tax deductible and Ms. Trent asks that people submit donations on or before May 4. She said people can schedule to have your donation picked up by contacting her at 388-9052 or Jamal Davis, Demitri’s brother, at 355-8899.

People can contact the fund by mail at DQH Scholarship Fund, 57 Maple Avenue, Riverhead NY, 11901 or by email at [email protected].
