The family of Lori Brown‚ one of the two real estate agents murdered in Cobb County last fall‚ has established an endowed scholarship at Kennesaw State University. Longtime family friend Deborah Snyder‚ state Sen. Robert Lamutt and U.S. Rep. Johnny Isakson were among those who spoke at the scholarship signing ceremony Monday in the Jolley Lodge.

Snyder‚ Brown’s manager at Morrison Homes‚ talked about Brown’s enthusiasm for learning. “Lori truly believed you can achieve anything you set your mind to. The Lori Brown Memorial Scholarship is a meaningful expression of her life.”

The endowed scholarship will exist in perpetuity‚ benefiting a Cobb County resident and student in the Michael J. Coles College of Business. KSU President Dr. Betty Siegel vowed‚ “We will make a wise choice in the recipient of the scholarship. It will be the responsibility of the recipient to live up to the life of Lori Brown. We will be good stewards of Lori’s legacy‚ as she was a steward of family and her community.”

Approximately 60 people attended the ceremony‚ including Brown’s parents Wayne and Linda Brown‚ her sister‚ Tiffany‚ and her fiance‚ Johnnie Tuggle.
