Announcing the 2016 Aftermath Collegiate Scholarship Winners
AURORA, Ill. (July 22nd, 2016) – As crime scene cleanup professionals, Aftermath Services operates around three pillars: education, safety, and community. In addition to embodying these principles in our everyday work, Aftermath supports these concepts through special opportunities and annual events like the 2016 Annual Aftermath Collegiate Scholarship.
The second annual Aftermath Collegiate Scholarship was announced at the end of May, and submissions were accepted through June. In addition to meeting several basic criteria, scholarship hopefuls were challenged to write an essay that clearly and creatively tackled the difficult subject of how social media has changed the way we think about and handle grief.
In one month, almost 1,000 applications were received, but only two winners were selected from hundreds of exceptional essays. We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Aftermath Collegiate Scholarship winners are:
Alexandra Garcia, of Islip, NY – attending Brooklyn College/Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema
Anna Li of Chicago, IL– a student at Dominican University
Once again, congratulations to this year’s winners. Be sure to keep an eye on our blog for interviews with both students and quotes from their essays, all coming in the next few weeks!
