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 ISIS terrorist attack in Nice, France. His parents Conrad and Paola Leslie’s hearts are broken and the depth of their sorrow is unimaginable, yet their love for Nick continues to grow each day. They honor the memory of their son with 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 want to help honor Nick’s memory and ensure that he will never be forgotten by helping raise the funds needed to fully endow Nick’s scholarship. We have established a GoFundMe page tied to the Victory of the People Scholarship and will be hosting the Nick Leslie Benefit Concert on November 12, 2016.
