We lost of member of the Virginia Tech family Thursday in Officer Deriek Crouse. Compounding the tragedy is that Officer Crouse leaves behind a wife and five children, just a little over two weeks before Christmas.
A memorial fund has been set up for Officer Crouse's family and there are multiple ways in which you can contribute.

The Hokies for Crouse Twitter feed has been updating the progress of the memorial fund and it's already over $25,000, just one day after the tragedy. That's something Hokies everywhere can be proud of.
