Riley Howell Scholarship Fund
Riley Howell, of Waynesville, NC, was a 21-year-old Environmental Studies major who enrolled in UNC Charlotte in Fall 2018 as a transfer from Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College. Riley loved the outdoors, and Star Wars, and pizza; he played soccer and ran cross country in high school and was described by those close to him as upbeat and optimistic, and always with a smile on his face. Riley’s family describes him as always putting others ahead of himself, and nothing exemplifies that more than his final, heroic actions in defense of his fellow students. We will not forget Riley.
After the horrible events that took place on UNC Charlotte's campus on April 30th, a scholarship was established in Riley's memory and will support other UNC Charlotte students who share some of the same interests as Riley.
Please make a gift today in Riley's memory to the Riley Howell Scholarship Fund.
