Ryan Francis Endowed Scholarship Established
Sept. 27, 2006
USC Athletics and the Trojan Board of Directors have announced the establishment of the Ryan Francis Endowed Scholarship with the hosting of an inaugural fund-raising event on Oct. 24 at the Galen Center from 4-7 p.m.
The Ryan Francis Endowed Scholarship Inaugural Event allows fans to watch practice at the brand new Galen Center from 4-5 p.m. and then attend a reception from 5-7. During that time, guests will hear from head coach Tim Floyd, meet the 2006-07 Trojan basketball team, enjoy cocktails and hors d'oveurs and receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the spectacular new arena.
The scholarship is being established to honor Ryan Francis, whose bright smile and big-hearted play inspired people everywhere. Francis, who was an honorable mention selection to the All-Pac-10 Freshman team last season, was shot and killed on May 14 while back home in Baton Rouge, La. visiting his mother.
