SAN JOSE (KCBS) – San Jose State University is honoring two students who were killed earlier this month by establishing scholarships in their memory.
Cindy Caliguiran and Kyle Williams were gunned down by Caliguiran’s husband in the 10th Street garage on May 10.
“A tremendous number of people have come forward since supporting a scholarship fund for each student,” said San Jose State University spokesperson Pat Lopes Harris. “So we’ve gone ahead and established those funds and we are accepting gifts. There are a tremendous number of people stepping forward.”
KCBS’ Mike Colgan Reports:
Harris said the university will also confer posthumously accounting degrees for both Caliguiran and Williams during commencement ceremonies this weekend.
“Both Cindy and Kyle were among our best and brightest students. Both were honors students,” Harris said. “Cindy also participated in a Sbona Honors Program that we offer to our business students, really our best and brightest.”
Both were on schedule to graduate with honors this Saturday.
