Scholarship set up in memory of Dr. Branch


Comments from individuals who attended the memorial event for Dr. Branch:

"Dr. Branch had an amazing presence. He always took time for everyone no matter the position or age. He took time for me, a student hourly and made me feel my work was just as important. He was a kind and generous person. I will never forget him."

"He suggested that I never give up, although I wasn't doing well in his class. He told me to read the study guide at the end of the chapter, then read the chapter. My grades improved drastically in all my classes. He was a great man who cared about his students. He inspired me."

"Charlie was a good friend and colleague. His smile brightened my day. His wisdom always powerful and spot on. His impact on Metro State is a true legacy. He will be missed."
