Victims' families have a choice:
they can take 180-thousand dollars or
divide that amount between a cash
payment and a scholarship in the
victim's name.

Some severely-injured victims are
eligible for 90-thousand dollars.
Their tuition and fees will also be

covered for the rest of their time at
Tech.

Less-severely injured victims
qualify for 40-thousand dollars, plus
tuition and fees.

Other victims, including those
who were in Norris Hall at the time,
are eligible for tuition and fees, OR
10-thousand dollars cash.

A new survey by Columbia University
says drug problems in the nation's

Four in five teens in high school
say they've seen someone either using,

The survey describes parents as
being in denial, or despair.
