John Adams High School remembers grad lost in September 11 attacks

SOUTH BEND, Ind. --Sunday, marks the 10th anniversary of the events on September 11, 2001.

John Adams High School hasn’t forgotten the loss of one of its own.

Adams grad, Katie McCloskey, worked on the 97th floor of The World Trade Center, when she was killed in the attacks on September 11.

A statue stands in her memory at the St. Joseph Valley Memorial Park Cemetery, in Granger.

A scholarship has also been set up in her name at the high school.

Wednesday, ABC 57 got the chance to talk to the latest recipient of that scholarship, Hollin Bolden.

Bolden’s family knew McCloskey’s family personally.

Bolden is very appreciative of the scholarship and said, “Just today actually, I sent a thank you card and I try to make sure that I either do an email once a semester of some type of communication to the family to just show my up most gratitude and respect for their contribution."

Bolden is now in her sophomore year at Ball State University.

McCloskey’s parents are planning to travel to New York City for the opening of The World Trade Center Memorial.
