During a Wednesday night candlelight vigil for slain law student Tiane Brown, Wayne State University (WSU) president M. Roy Wilson announced that the university will establish a fund to assist Brown’s children.
Brown was reported missing Monday, when she failed to pick up her three children at her parents' home in West Bloomfield. She was found shot to death in Detroit on Wednesday.
Wilson also announced that, after discussion with the WSU Board of Governors, Wayne State will offer free tuition to Brown’s three children if they choose to attend the university. Brown will receive her law degree posthumously in May 2014, when she was scheduled to graduate.
Those who wish to help should make checks payable to Wayne State University and reference “The Tiane Brown Fund” on the memo line. Donors should provide full contact information if they wish the family notified of their gift.
Checks can be sent to: Wayne State University Beecher House 5475 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI 48202
Credit card donations can be made by calling the Wayne State Fund Office at 313-577-2263 or 313-577-2275 or by visiting giving.wayne.edu.
