Student dead at 24

Nathan Seiter, an NKU student, died in a single-vehicle crash Nov. 30 at 5:51 a.m. Seiter, of California, Ky., was on his way home from work at DHL Worldwide Express, where he worked the third-shift. He was a half-mile from his parents’ home. He was 24.

Police said neither alcohol nor speed were factors in his crash on Washington Trace Road when he lost control of his car and struck a tree.

Seiter, a 1998 graduate of Bishop Brossart High School in Alexandria, was the school’s all-time leading scorer in boy’s basketball. Seiter accumulated 1,779 points in his four-year varsity career. Seiter played one season of basketball at NKU in 1998.

Seiter was taking business classes at NKU.

SGA awards book grants

Northern Kentucky University’s SGA awarded 30 students a $100 book grant certificate for the 2005 spring semester. The students were selected from 115 student applications.

The SGA Book Grant Committee evaluated the applicants’ volunteer activities, community involvement, extracurricular activities, leadership experience and 250-word essay to determine the award recipients.
