Criterion staff report

Recipients of this year’s scholarships from the Brooke Nicole Lahr Memorial Fund for International Mission Work were honored on March 4 at the Archbishop Edward T. O’Meara Catholic Center in Indianapolis.

The youths and young adult recipients from across central Indiana received scholarships to fund international mission trips this year through a fund managed by the archdiocesan Catholic Community Foundation.

It was established in 2013 in memory of Brooke Nicole Lahr, a member of St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in Indianapolis, who died that year in Mexico after being struck by a car as a pedestrian. At the time, she was involved in mission work in Honduras.
