Grosse Pointe — A scholarship is being created in memory of a 16-year-old Grosse Pointe Farms girl who was fatally shot in 2014.

Beaumont Hospital’s Grosse Pointe campus Thursday announced the $1,000 scholarship honoring Paige Stalker, who volunteered at the hospital.

Jennifer Stalker says in a statement she’s grateful to Beaumont for recognizing her daughter’s life and service.

Police say the teen was in a parked car Dec. 22, 2014, with friends on Detroit’s east side when a man opened fire, killing her. No charges have been brought. Stalker’s family has joined others dealing with similar tragedies, going door-to-door to help solve cases.

Seniors at University Liggett School in Grosse Pointe Woods earlier decided to create the scholarship honoring Paige, who would have graduated from the school this May.
