One of the recipients of a yearly scholarship awarded by the college for LBCC students who have died is Alicia Faith Todd, 21, of Signal Hill, who was murdered June 24.

Todd was planning to transfer to Cal State Long Beach and major in social work with an emphasis specializing in helping children.

Her sister Patricia “Patti” Todd and her family will attend the scholarship award ceremony Wednesday, June 8, at 10 a.m. in the LAC Hall of Champions gym.

Patricia Todd will graduate Thursday, June 9, from LBCC with a degree in social sciences and she plans to transfer to Cal State Dominguez Hills in the fall.

Regarding the scholarship honoring her sister, she said, “On behalf of my family we are proud and honored to be able to be a part of this scholarship ceremony. I want to thank all the staff and faculty at the college for making this possible and ensuring that my sister is not forgotten.”
