I spoke this morning with Dr. Trepka, who informed me that because of legal issues, Alpha Omega at FIU will not be able to directly administer a scholarship in Katie's name for this spring semester. Alpha Omega does not currently have the means to receive donations for the scholarship. Donations made already for the scholarship will be returned by mail in the coming weeks.
I will be in touch, individually and via the blog, with future news regarding plans for a scholarship in Katie's name.
As previously stated, Katie will be honored on March 7th, 2008 at FIU, during a student-alumni event. Alpha Omega will award a non-monetary leadership award--the "Alpha Omega Katie Evans Outstanding Leadership Award"--named for Katie, at that event.
