Reporter Vu Nguyen, 34, of Long Beach, Calif., passed away tragically on May 17, 2009, but his full life is one that refuses to be forgotten.
To honor his life, Vu's graduate school classmates created a scholarship in his name. Today, nearly $14,000 has been raised toward our endowment goal. Find out how you can help by clicking on the above link titled "The Scholarship."
The University of Illinois at Springfield Public Affairs Reporting program appreciates your support, and we know Vu would, too. With enough funds, we hope the scholarship can be awarded each year to aspiring reporters who idealize the dedication Vu brought to his field.
