Background: The promising life of Ashley Krakowski, 19, of Orange, ended tragically on June 13, 2009, when (former) Milford Police Officer Jason Anderson slammed into her car at a speed in excess of 90 MPH while he was returning from the scene of a bar fight in West Haven — there was no need to return to the station in a hurry.
Both Ashley and her boyfriend David Servin, also 19, died at the scene.
Ashley had just completed her final Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) test and was planning on studying to become a nurse. David was studying to be a social worker.
The scholarship will be awarded at the annual June meeting.
