Three local bands will host a concert this week to benefit the Rob Meline “Right Stuff” scholarship fund.
The fund is named for longtime Camas Prairie Elementary School teacher Rob Meline, who died last month, a victim of homicide.
His son, 29-year-old Jonathan Robert Meline, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death. The son, who has a history of mental illness, pleaded not guilty.
The concert, by bands Insuburban Avenue, Static and Artificial Life, will be from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday in the auditorium of Spanaway Lake High School.
The concert will raise money for a scholarship established to honor the late teacher and his love of NASA and space exploration.
Donations also can be made directly to the scholarship fund, which will be awarded annually to a Bethel School District-area student who plans to major in science.
Donations can be made care of BEST Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 742, Graham, WA 98338.
Checks should note that the contribution is for the “Right Stuff” scholarship.
