The children of six highway workers killed in the line of duty will receive financial assistance in their pursuit of higher education thanks to scholarships announced by the American Road & Transportation Builders Association's Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF).


Students from Kentucky, Oregon, Georgia, Iowa, Montana and Michigan have been named as 2003 recipients of the ARTBA-TDF's Highway Worker Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship program was established in 1999 with a gift to the foundation from two Roanoke, Va., highway contractors and their companies--Stan Lanford, president of Lanford Brothers, and Jack Lanford, president of the Adams Construction Co. Both men are past chairmen of the national association.


This year's scholarship winners are: Ronnie and Kristin Cooper, Hanlontown, Iowa; Daniel Doyle, Sault Saint Marie, Mich.; Christopher Henderson, Lancaster, Ky.; Peter and David Howland, Portland, Ore.; Juliet Gassett Hobbs, Thomaston, Ga.; and Jessie Patterson, East Helena, Mont.


The foundation is interested in receiving contact leads on young scholars who could benefit from the scholarship program. Please share them with ARTBA Scholarship and Awards Manager Rhonda Haskins at 202/289-4434. Individuals and firms interested in supporting the scholarship program can do so by sending a fully tax-deductible contribution, payable to the ARTBA-TDF, at 1010 Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001.
