Colonel Parker Schenecker was at Liberty Middle School today to accept a donation to his children's memorial fund.
Members of the National Junior Honor Society and the Future Business Leaders of America sold cookie dough to raise the funds.
They presented the colonel a check for $5,000 in honor of his children, Calyx and Beau Schenecker. Police say the siblings were shot and killed by their mother in January 2011.
The memorial fund provides scholarships for promising leaders, athletes, and artists in the Bay area.
Calyx would have been a college freshman this year. Beau was an eighth grader at Liberty and an FBLA member. He would have been a sophomore at Freedom High this year.
