LOCKERBIE STUDENTS GOING TO SYRACUSEAssociated Press
Ceremonies took place in the Scottish town of Lockerbie on Wednesday to send two schoolgirls to Syracuse University on scholarships created as a memorial for the victims of Pan Am Flight 103.
Fiona Griffin and Katharine Grant, both 16, will spend nine months at the New York university that lost 35 students in the bombing of the Boeing 747 airliner in December 1988.
All 259 people aboard the New York-bound Maid of the Seas and 11 people on the ground were killed.
The ceremony setting up the scholarship was signed at Lockerbie Academy by two academy teachers and local councilmen who are trustees of the air disaster fund.
Students from the Lockerbie area of southern Scotland who meet university entrance qualifications will compete annually for the double scholarship, which is managed by the Lockerbie and Syracuse University Trust.
The scholarship is funded jointly by the university and the disaster fund.
