A Chapel Hill student newspaper is remembering one of the victims of last month's fraternity house fire with a scholarship fund.

Joanna Howell of Cary was one of five people who died in the blaze. She worked at theDaily Tar Heelas a student reporter.

Now the paper has set up a journalism award in her name.

Anyone who'd like to make a donation to the Joanna Howell Fund can send contributions, made payable to theDaily Tar Heel, at P.O. Box 3257, Chapel Hill, N.C., 27515
