Scholarships honor 6 Hopkins alumni killed Sept. 11

November 14, 2001

The Johns Hopkins University announced yesterday the creation of two scholarship programs by its Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences in memory of six alumni killed during the terrorist attacks Sept. 11.

The alumni are Thomas Cahill, Class of 1987; Paul J. Friedman, Class of 1978; Matt O'Mahony, Class of 1984; David W. Nelson, Class of 1973; and Glenn Wall, Class of 1984, all graduates of the School of Arts and Sciences; and John Sammartino, who earned his master's degree in 1990 from the Whiting School of Engineering.

One of the funds will provide full tuition for any of the five children of the six victims who attend the Krieger school.

The other, the September Eleven Alumni Memorial Scholarship, is a grant open to any undergraduate Krieger student.

Dean Richard E. McCarty of the Krieger school said $20,000 has been allocated to open an account for the September Eleven Alumni Memorial Scholarship.

Plaques honoring the six alumni will be added to the war memorials in the main lobby of Gilman Hall on the Homewood campus.
