Parker Schenecker share a laugh with other students in the Future Business Leaders of America organization during the annual Schenecker Memorial Fund program held in the school's media center on Thursday, December 18, 2014.

Journalist Tim Madigan will talk at Liberty Middle School on 10 a.m. Friday as part of the Schenecker Speaker Series.

Madigan is the author of I'm Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers, which documents his relationship with the children's television performer as well the importance of friendship and love. The series is in honor of former Liberty Middle School students Beau and Calyx Schenecker, who were killed by their mother Julie Schenecker in 2011.

Their father Parker Schenecker has also established a Calyx and Beau Schenecker Memorial Fund, which provides scholarships for Tampa Bay residents.
