Leon County, FL - This Labor Day holiday marks the sixth anniversary of the death of Ronshay Dugans.

The 8-year old was killed after a bus that she was traveling in, collided with the truck of a fatigued driver. In 2008, Governor Charlie Crist designated the first week of September as Ronshay Dugans Drowsy Drivers Week. The goal is to bring awareness and to alert drivers about the dangers of driving while drowsy. This year, Dugans' family will create a scholarship in her name.

Josie West, Advocate Against Drowsy Driving: "This year we are focusing on a scholarship in her name, this year for students that you know would like to go to school and major in science."

To apply for the scholarship, email josiewest@drowsydrivingfl.org.
