Friends of fallen State Police Trooper Michael P. Stewart III from Pittsburgh Steelers Summer Training Camp have created a scholarship fund in his memory at Saint Vincent College. The scholarship will support Saint Vincent College students who are graduates of Greater Latrobe Senior High School.
Trooper Stewart was honored at the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday Night Lights practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium.
“Incoming freshman students from the Greater Latrobe School District will be eligible to receive funding from this special scholarship,” Fr. Paul R. Taylor, O.S.B., executive vice president at Saint Vincent, said.
Stewart, a native of Latrobe, 2008 graduate of Greater Latrobe Senior High School and a member of Sacred Heart Parish, had worked for nine years as camp staff for the Pittsburgh Steelers during their annual summer training camps at Saint Vincent. He died on July 14 in an automobile accident while on duty.
“Trooper Stewart, a young man who died in the line of duty, proudly worked at Pittsburgh Steelers summer training camp,” Fr. Paul added. “In honor of his dedication to Saint Vincent, the Pittsburgh Steelers and his Latrobe community, this scholarship has been created in his memory. He was a lifelong sports fan who played baseball with the American Legion and enjoyed hunting, fishing and the outdoors. He is the son of Michael P. and Lynn A. Stewart of Latrobe.”
Those interested in making a contribution to the fund may contact the Office of Institutional Advancement, Saint Vincent College, 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe, PA 15650-2690. For further details, http://www.stvincent.edu/michaelstewart, firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-805-2949.
