TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - It's been a little more than a month since one Terre Haute South Vigo High School student died in a car crash.

On Tuesday, three students continued with their plan to honor Jenna Perelle.

Terre Haute South students Dylan Major, Noah Crosley, and Jaspreet Dhillon created t-shirts in honor of Perelle.

They sold the shirts in the community and raised around $8,000.

On Tuesday, the students donated that money to the Perelle family.

It will go toward a scholarship in Jenna's name.

The family says they appreciate the support from the community.

"On behalf of the Perelle family: Laurie, Colby, and Emily they want to extend their sincere gratitude to the entire community for the outpour of love and support that they've given them for the last month. It's been truly amazing," Family friend Tiffany Scamihorn said.

"I'm pretty sure everybody in that school liked her. She was never angry at anybody. She had great friendships. She was always happy. Always had a smile on her face," Dylan Major said.

The Jenna Perelle Scholarship fund now has more than $24,000.
