Each year, 35 Syracuse University Remembrance Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students on the basis of distinguished academic achievement, citizenship, and service to community. Five Falk College students have been awarded this prestigious honor for the 2014-15 academic year. They include:

  • Fergus Barrie, Sport Management
  • Miho Hatanaka, Nutrition
  • Sara Mileski, Child & Family Studies
  • John Rodgers, Nutrition
  • Lauren Strand, Sport Management

“To be named a Remembrance Scholar is one of the highest honors at Syracuse University that recognizes students’ outstanding academic achievement and service to others, which is consistent with the Falk College’s priorities for all of its students. We are very proud of Fergus, Miho, Sara, John and Lauren—and all of this year’s scholars,” notes Diane Lyden Murphy, dean, Falk College.

The Remembrance Scholarships were established by Syracuse University to honor and remember the 35 students studying abroad with Syracuse University who were among the 270 men, women, and children killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988.
