FAYETTEVILLE--The family of a soldier killed in a vehicle accident in Iraq in 2007 continues to support a scholarship started in his name.

Spc. Steven Elrod's family and friends held a car show fundraiser this weekend.

The proceeds will go to a scholarship given to a Massey Hill High School graduate every year.

This is something his friends and family said he would be proud of.

"We've done it for 3 years now and we are hoping that today we will be able to increase that fund and next year when we give away the scholarship hopefully it will be a considerable amount," said Karin Morin.

So far, three people have been given the scholarship. This is the first year for the fundraiser, but organizers hope to make it an annual event.
