Criterion staff report

Recipients of this year’s scholarships from the Brooke Nicole Lahr Memorial Fund for International Mission Work were honored on Feb. 26 at the Archbishop Edward T. O’Meara Catholic Center in Indianapolis.

The young adult recipients from across central and southern 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.
