Funeral services have been set for former Chicago Board of Education President Michael Scott.

Visitation and a private service will be Saturday at Holy Family Church in Chicago.

A public memorial will be held Sunday at the UIC Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Road. on the Chicago campus of the University of Illinois.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Better Boys Foundation Michael W. Scott Scholarship Fund, 1512 South Pulaski, Chicago, 60623.

Scott's body was found earlier this week partially submerged in the Chicago River. A .380-caliber handgun was nearby.

The Cook County medical examiner's office has ruled the 60-year-old's death a suicide. But a group of community activists have said they don't believe Scott killed himself.

Chicago police continued their investigation, but haven't found evidence Scott was the victim of a crime.

Scott, who's been called lifelong public servant, was appointed to the school board three times.
