Benjamen Redix Foundation formed


A foundation named after late White Hall student/athlete Benjamen Redix has been formed to help student athletes in Jefferson County. Redix died just hours before his graduation from White Hall High School last year in what police called an accidental shooting. Redix was a star on the football field and had earned a full scholarship to Southern Arkansas University to run track. Redix’s mother said the goal of the foundation is to help student athletes in the county through sports camps and scholarships. The first Benjamen Redix Project Gala was held on Saturday to raise money for those scholarships and more.
