- Former Keystone student to be honored during ceremony remembering Lockerbie victims
La Plume – A former Keystone student who perished during the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, will be remembered in a special way by the daughter of a Keystone professor.
Juliann Merryman, a Syracuse University student and daughter of Keystone College Associate Professor Dr. Nancy Merryman, has been selected as a Remembrance Scholar for an upcoming ceremony honoring the 35 Syracuse University students killed in the Lockerbie attack.
As a Remembrance Scholar, Juliann, a senior from Bear Creek, Pa., is honoring Timothy Cardwell, a Keystone student and Cresco native who continued his education at Syracuse and was one of the students killed in the bombing. Syracuse University will conduct a special memorial ceremony on Friday, Oct. 26 at 2:03 p.m., the exact time of the attack.
Juliann was selected as a Remembrance Scholar after a competitive application process. The $5,000 scholarships are awarded on the basis of distinguished academic achievement, citizenship, and service to community. She chose to represent Timothy Cardwell because of the mutual connection to Keystone.
“I wanted to honor Timothy and all the victims of the Lockerbie bombing in this special way,” she said.
“We’re honored that Juliann has been selected as a Remembrance Scholar and especially gratified that she has chosen to remember Timothy, who was a valued member of both the Keystone College and Syracuse University communities,” said Dr. Merryman, an associate professor of anthropology and sociology. “There is certainly a special connection between Syracuse and Keystone on this important day.”
