Brian Blaha, the son of Michael Blaha, died on July 10, 2007 after a long and brave struggle with leukemia. He was halfway through his doctoral work in Computer Engineering when stricken with the disease. Brian was a brilliant student having received both his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Engineering in 4 years while compiling a nearly 4.0 GPA.
We have established a scholarship fund in Computer Engineering in his honor. Those who are interested can directly contact the University of Missouri-Rolla, 212 Parker Hall, Rolla, MO 65409, USA. If there are any questions Connie Eggert (eggertc AT umr.edu) can answer them.
For tax purposes, contributions are charitable donations and the university will acknowledge them.
