A statewide torch relay, which kicked off on Sept. 9 as part of Indiana’s bicentennial celebration, is scheduled to pass through St. Joseph County this weekend.
On Saturday (Oct. 8), the torch will travel through parts of St. Joseph County, including the University of Notre Dame campus, in the hands of five Notre Dame representatives who have been selected as local torchbearers, including University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.
Along with Father Jenkins, other Notre Dame torchbearers include Rev. Paul Kollman, C.S.C., executive director of the Center for Social Concerns; Tracy Kijewski-Correa, the Leo E. and Patti Ruth Linbeck chair and associate professor of civil and environmental engineering and earth sciences; Anna Rohrer, a sophomore student-athlete from Mishawaka; and Morgan Ludwig, a freshman from Granger. Torchbearers were selected by a local committee from public nominations.
