Sault Ste. Marie – A fire science scholarship at Lake Superior State University has been created to honor a student who died.

The Sault Ste. Marie school says the Justin Kelly Memorial Endowment is made possible by family and friends of Kelly, a fire science student from Milford who died in February as a result of an accident. Fire science candidates entering their junior year are eligible for the award.

The first recipient is Jacob Sieloff, who is from St. Clair. He says in a release that Kelly was a classmate and friend who remains “a huge part of LSSU.”

The LSSU Foundation is accepting additional contributions to the scholarship.
