Three Whitman seniors receive Remembrance Scholarships

Whitman seniors Henry Chu of Middletown, N.Y., Kyle Brandon Coleman of Hilton, N.Y., and Zhi Q. Yang of New York City, are among the 35 Syracuse University students named 2013-2014 Convocation for Remembrance Scholars.

The Remembrance Scholarships, among the most prestigious scholarships awarded by the University, were founded as a tribute to the 270 people, including 35 Syracuse University students studying abroad through Syracuse University, who were killed in the Dec. 21, 1988, bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the tragedy. Read more here.
