    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the Indiana Department of Transportation to rename State Road 10 between Wheatfield and Demotte in honor of Trooper Scott A. Patrick.

    Whereas, Scott A. Patrick was born September 12, 1975, to Ron and Sandy Patrick;

    Whereas, Scott grew up in the Wheatfield area and graduated from Kankakee Valley High School with an academic honors diploma;

    Whereas, Scott then attended the University of Southern Indiana (USI) on an academic and carpenter's scholarship;

    Whereas, while attending USI, Scott was a founding member of the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity and excelled in sports as a starter for the rugby team and a participant in the intramural program;

    Whereas, while attending USI, Scott met Melissa Clark, whom he married in July 2000;

    Whereas, in January 2000, Scott began his career as an Indiana State Police Trooper, starting at the academy on January 23 and graduating on June 23;

    Whereas, upon graduation, Scott was assigned to the

Lowell Post and he and Melissa moved to Valparaiso. Scott loved his job and strove to be the best trooper he could be;

    Whereas, Scott was very committed to his family. Just prior to his death, Scott had learned that he was going to become a father and he beamed with pride every time someone mentioned fatherhood;

    Whereas, Scott's child will never know the wonderful man who was his father because Scott gave his life protecting the citizens of Indiana; and

    Whereas, Scott was a unique individual who touched the lives of everyone he came in contact with and his death leaves an enormous void in the lives of many people: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate     of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives     concurring:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana General Assembly wishes to express its deepest sympathy to the family of Trooper Scott A. Patrick and urges the Indiana Department of Transportation to rename State Road 10 between Wheatfield and Demotte in honor of Trooper Scott A. Patrick.
