Friday, March 7, 2008, has been set by FIU as the day to honor Katie at an event among current students and alumni.
The event will be held on the FIU south campus in the Mark building (in Miami proper, close to the Turnpike).
Katie will be honored in three different ways during the event, including the awarding of the Alpha Omega Katie Evans Outstanding Leadership Award and the Katie Evans Memorial Scholarship. The event will be hosted jointly by Alpha Omega (honors society establishing the scholarship and leadership award), SPHA (alumni and student public health association at FIU), and the Stempel School of Public Health at FIU.
Right now, about 17 family members plan to attend the event. Friends are also welcome to attend. You can contact the head of AO who is organizing the event, Anamarie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to attend. A fee may or may not be involved.
