  • Hannibal resident Katelyn Thurman, 22, has been selected to receive a ICMA-RC Vantagepoint Public Employee Memorial Scholarship (ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarship) presented by the Scholarship Fund Board of Directors. A total of 29 scholarships were given this year to recipients from 18 different states. Thurman will attend Hannibal-LaGrange University in the fall.
    ICMA-RC Memorial Scholarships are presented annually to surviving children and spouses of firefighters, police officers and other public employees who have died in the line of duty. Jason L. Bitting died in the line of duty while serving the Keokuk Fire Department.
    Individuals are eligible to apply for the educational scholarship if they are the child or spouse of a local or state government employee who has died in the line of duty and planning to study full-time at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or vocational-technical school. Applicants are selected based on a number of factors including financial need, academic record, demonstrated leadership in school and community activities, honors and work experience.
