Recipients of 2017 Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships announced

The American Traffic Safety Services Foundation (The Foundation) has awarded 2017 Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships to four 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. 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 2017 recipients are:

Cody Garner, of Arkansas, who will study business and accounting at the University of Arkansas as a freshman. His father, John, was killed when the road surface compactor he was operating flipped over on a steep incline and rolled over him.

Brionna Lizotte, of Missouri, who is studying Justice Systems at Truman State University. Her father, Gerald, was transporting materials from a worksite for his job with the Missouri Department of Transportation when he was hit by a vehicle, resulting in his death.

Andrea Pair, of Oklahoma, who is attending Carl Albert State College. Pair also will 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.

Caitlyn Rains, of Arkansas, who will attend the University of Central Arkansas as a freshman to study pre-law. Her father, James “Bubba” Rains, was struck and killed by a vehicle while working with a nighttime paving crew. Rains also will receive an additional scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for her volunteer work.

The Foundation’s core mission is to raise public awareness for roadway work zone safety across the country.
