Overview

Opportunity Description

Ken Bissett of Hartsdale, NY, class of ‘90, began his education at Cornell in the School of Engineering. His strong love for creative writing and artistic talent eventually drew him to the Communication Department. Ken’s friends and professors enjoyed his piquant but gentle humor. They remembered him as a brilliant artist and excellent student, someone who cared immensely about the art he created. In the fall of 1988 Ken joined the Syracuse-in-London Program because he felt the opportunity to study abroad would be a new and broadening experience. On December 21, he and 37 other college students returning from London were killed when their plane, Pan Am flight 103, was destroyed in flight by a terrorist bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland.
