ASU’s Tillman Scholars poised to tackle society’s toughest problems
Fulton Schools computer science doctoral student Vivin Paliath, an Arizona Army National Guard veteran, is one of two ASU graduate students to be named Tillman Scholars for the Class of 2018. He joins U.S. Air Force veteran Lindsay Lorson, a master’s student in ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, among only 60 recipients across the nation of this year’s Tillman scholarship awards. Pat Tillman was an ASU football star who later left the Arizona Cardinals NFL team to join the U.S. Army. He was killed while on duty in Afghanistan in 2004.
