During the game, fans took a moment to remember Lowry and Hathcock
HOPE MILLS — A Cumberland County community is moving forward after two officers weregunned down in the line of duty. But, moving forward does not meanforgetting.

South View High School football fans paused for a moment during Fridaynight's game to honor the two officers their community lost last week.

As action kicked off on the field, the Hope Mills school kicked off a scholarship fund in memory of Trooper Ed Lowry and Deputy David Hathcock.

Fans said they thought the idea was great.

Each year, a scholarship will go to a South View graduate who is the son or daughter of a law enforcement officer or to a graduate who's pursuing acollege degree in law enforcement.

South View High School Principal Anthony Parker said he thought the fundwill honor the memory of the two officers.

At halftime, the band saluted the fallen officers in song. Two of theirpeers marched in their memory. It was a touching tribute, but bandmembers were not finished. They passed the hat to help get the scholarshipfund off to a running start.
