ATSSF Announces 2016 Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarship Recipients

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (June 21, 2016) – The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation (The Foundation), which exists to raise public awareness for roadway work zone safety across the country, recently awarded new 2016 Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships to five students. The scholarships are awarded to dependents of workers, who were killed or permanently disabled in roadway work zone crashes, to help assist them in continuing their academic goals. Additionally, scholarship recipients who demonstrate a strong commitment to volunteerism are also eligible for a $1,000 scholarship in honor of former American Traffic Safety Services Association member Chuck Bailey, who was killed in a tragic highway accident in 2002.

The 2016 recipients are:

Andrea Pair, of Oklahoma, who attends Carl Albert State College in Poteau, Okla. Pair will also receive an additional scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for her volunteer work. Pair’s father, Shannon, worked for Time Striping Inc. in Arkansas when he was removing pavement marking from a highway, and a vehicle struck and killed him. Pair was two years old when her father died at the age of 31.
