The president of Seattle Pacific University announced at its graduation ceremony that a scholarship has been named for the student who stopped a fatal shooting on campus earlier this month. President Daniel Martin on Saturday told graduates, including Jon Meis, that an engineering scholarship will be given in his honor. Students and their friends and family gave Meis a standing ovation at the ceremony. The private Christian college and local police say Meis pepper-sprayed and tackled the gunman when he stopped to reload a shotgun in a campus building June 5. One person died and two others were injured. The suspect has been charged with murder.
