The family of a West Virginia University student who died shortly after enrolling in the master of business administration program has started a $100,000 scholarship fund in his honor.
Romney native Brian Brick was 22 when he drowned in the Tygart River in Barbour County in July, just months after earning his accounting degree.
WVU said Monday his family created an endowed scholarship through the Allinder-Anestis Family Charitable Fund.
The Brian Douglas Brick Memorial Scholarship will provide yearly awards to graduate school students in the College of Business and Economics. It starts with two current MBA students who are part of Brick's cohort.
Brick's family says he loved WVU and the MBA program, and they want to support young people who approach education and life with integrity and hard work.
