Indiana University of Pennsylvania today will present the first scholarship honoring Stephen Mayhle, a 2002 criminology graduate and Pittsburgh police officer slain April 4, 2009, in the line of duty.
The first Stephen Mayhle Memorial Scholarship recipient is Patrick Allen Lee, a 2012 IUP criminology graduate from Uniontown. The presentation will be made during the criminology department graduation ceremony at 1:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's Fisher Auditorium
The $450 award recognizes high academic achievement and good moral character among those pursuing a career in criminology, according to IUP. The scholarship fund was established by KPMG, an international audit, tax, and advisory firm, with the assistance of KPMG employee Julie Duvall, a school friend of Mayhle, and Mayhle's widow.
Officers Mayhle, Paul J. Sciullo II and Eric G. Kelly were killed by a gunman in Stanton Heights on April 4, 2009.
