A funeral to remember Dr. Michael Blankenship, who died suddenly April 21 on the Boise State campus, is set for Thursday afternoon.

Two colleagues in Boise State's criminal justice department have requested that their scholarship, Land of Hope and Dreams Scholarship, be changed to the Michael Blankenship Social Justice Scholarship in Criminal Justice.

The service is scheduled for 3 p.m. in the Boise State Special Events Center.
