DeEbony Groves’ Mother Received Her College Diploma In Her Honor
POSTED BY WLAS May 8th, 2018 0 COMMENTS

May 5, 2018, was supposed to be the day that DeEbony Groves walked across the stage to receive her college degree. However, her life was tragically cut short by a shooter at a Waffle House in Tennessee according to Blavity.

Instead, her mother Shiri Baker walked across that stage and accepted her degree, with her brother Di’Angelo Groves following after to receive his. On April 22, Travis Reinking walked into a Waffle House restaurant in Antioch, Tennessee and began shooting the place up killing four.

James Shaw Jr. was able to stop Reinking from killing anyone else in the restaurant when he wrestled the gun away from him. From that incident, Shaw started a gofundme account dedicated to the families of the four people lost that day.

DeEbony would have received her degree from Belmont University in social work. The University has named a scholarship after her in her honor. “The DeEbony Groves Social Work Diversity Endowed Scholarship will inspire and create opportunities for other Belmont students who, like DeEbony, committed their lives to helping and brightening the lives of others,” according to a statement on the universities website.

A statement released by Belmont University detailed how much DeEbony was looking forward to working as a social worker.

“DeEbony was proud to be a social work major and was looking forward to changing the world as a professional social worker,” the university said, adding: “Her legacy will live on through this special scholarship that will provide financial support and encouragement to generations of social work majors at Belmont University.”
