TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (WHNT) - The heat didn't stop the community from coming together and remembering one of their own this weekend.
Joel's mother continues to honer her son by rewarding scholarships in his name. A part of Saturday's event was raising funds.
"So far the last eight years we've given six scholarships in memory of him," she said.
The family said the motorcycle ride and fundraiser grow each year, a sign that her son is not forgotten. They gathered at the Willie Green Center in Tuscumbia.
