Justin transferred from Georgia Tech to Southern Polytechnic University, and was due to graduate in December 2007.
Justin loved and valued his relationships with others. He enjoyed spending time with his family whom he saw as friends and he adopted his friends as family. He was truly a generous, kindhearted, positive person who loved and lived his life with exuberance and graciousness. Justin was a steadfast believer in his own dreams and those of others.
True to his nature to aid those in need, Justin attempted to intervene on a crime and was tragically killed in 2007. He is remembered for the loving and caring person that he was and honored with the Justin Sterling Brown Scholarship.
