Students receive prestigious scholarship


Two college students received scholarships today in South Bend. Will Connors and Alkeyna Aldridge are studying public works at Notre Dame and Ball State respectively.

Interns with the city of South Bend can apply for the Evan Sears scholarship. Sears was an intern that was killed in a traffic accident while working on a street project 14 years ago.

The scholarship is a way to honor Sears while promoting workplace safety.

Recipient Will Connors said, "Its not only a good way to remember him, its also to teach us a lesson about safety."

Alkeyna Aldridge, the other scholarship recipient explained the scholarship by saying, "So I talked about reflecting on personal accountability and how important that it is."

Connors is a senior and Aldridge is grad student.
