On July 14, 2016, UC Berkeley undergraduate student and Phi Gamma Delta Brother, Nicolas Leslie was unexpectedly taken from his loving family and community during the terrorist attack in Nice, France. In an effort to honor Nick’s memory, his parents established the Victory of the People Scholarship to provide support for undergraduate students enrolled in Berkeley Study Abroad programs at UC Berkeley.
The name Nicolas means “Victory of the People”. We believe that the people will be victorious and prevail over terror and hate, even if it’s one person at a time. We can raise consciousness when we meet new people, travel abroad, share our feelings, interchange ideas, and propose new points of view / solutions. This Victory of the People Scholarship helps develop future ambassadors for global peace and understanding.
The Delta Xi Brothers once again proudly want to help honor Nick’s memory and continue to grow the Victory of the People endowment by hosting a benefit concert at the Chapter House on Novmember 11, 2017. To go along with the concert we have established a GoFundMe page tied to the Victory of the People Scholarship. We hope that you will join us in our effort to honor our brother and friend.
