Family Of Mollie Tibbetts Sets Up Fund At U Of I Children’s Hospital
Mollie Tibbetts may no longer be able to pursue a career in child psychology, but thanks to a new fund, others will. According to a press release from the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital, the Mollie Tibbetts Memorial Fund For Child and Adolescent Psychiatry has been established.
So far more than 270 people have donated to the fund and more than $20,000 has been raised. Anyone can donate to the fund. Tibbetts was a psychology major at the University of Iowa when she went missing from her home near Brooklyn, Iowa in July. After a seven month search, her body was found in a nearby cornfield. The man who led police to her body has been charged with first-degree murder.
In the press release, Mollie's mother, Laura Calderwood, said that Mollie was pursuing her dream of becoming a child psychologist. She added that Mollie was "incredibly generous in her life, so it is fitting that her name will live on by benefiting others."
