Brian Goff Memorial Sports Reporters Scholarship to be established at RCC

May 3, 2019 – Riverside – The Riverside Community College District Foundation will soon establish the Brian Goff Memorial Viewpoints Sports Reporters Scholarship at Riverside City College.

The 10-year scholarship will be created in Brian’s name once donations surpass $5,000. The endowment, a permanent yearly scholarship, will be created once donations surpass $20,000.

Friends, family and community members can contribute to the scholarship’s creation as follows:

Make checks payable to RCCD Foundation. Write “Brian Goff Scholarship” in the memo line. Mail checks to: RCCD Foundation, 4800 Magnolia Ave., Riverside, CA 92506.

Gifts can also be made online by clicking the “Donate Now” button on the RCCD Foundation website: https://www.rccd.edu/foundation.

Donations to the RCCD Foundation are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. All contributions will be acknowledged with a charitable gift receipt.

Brian Goff Memorial Viewpoints Sports Reporters Scholarship Founder Dennis Pope said, “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Brian Goff as we celebrate his tremendous life. Brian was a talented and hard-working sports reporter who, like many of us, loved every minute he spent with RCC’s Viewpoints newspaper. Brian’s work ethic led to opportunities for himself and for others, and this is what the Brian Goff Scholarship is about – to continue to create inspiration and opportunities for the next generation of Viewpoints sports reporters – because Brian meant a great deal to many of us, and it’s my aim to have his spirit continue to live on through this scholarship.”

The scholarship will be made available to Riverside City College student journalists each academic calendar. Students must have been registered in ‘Journalism 20’, and display a balanced and consistent level of sports reporting.

The Brian Goff Memorial Viewpoints Sports Reporters Scholarship aims to award its first recipient during the 2020 academic year.
