Chris Singleton

Charleston Southern University has created the Singleton Memorial Fund in memory of Chris Singleton's mother, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton.

Ms. Singleton was one of the nine individuals killed June 17 at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

Chris is a rising sophomore at Charleston Southern and a member of the Buccaneer Baseball team. Funds will be used to meet Chris's educational expenses at CSU. It is Chris's wish that any remaining funds be applied to the planned CSU baseball enrichment center in memory of Ms. Singleton.

Stuart Lake, head baseball coach, said, "I am so excited today to hear what the NCAA has allowed us to do for Chris. I'm very proud of the way the local baseball community has stepped up to help the Singleton family."

President Jairy C. Hunter Jr. said, "Charleston Southern University is committed to helping Chris through the difficult days ahead as he deals with the loss of his mother. This fund is just one way that we can be of assistance."

The University would like to thank the NCAA for extending this opportunity to assist the Singleton family during this difficult time. The NCAA is committed to the welfare of student-athletes nationwide.
