Captain Drew Russell, a WMU ROTC Alumni, was KIA in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan on October 8, 2011. As an active member within his community of Scotts, Michigan and a 2004 graduate of Vicksburg High School, he is remembered as a stand up man who was always looking out for his friends and family. After earning his commission as a second lieutenant in Armor through Western Michigan University ROTC program, he was stationed in Fort Carson, Colorado to carry out his time as an Active Duty Armor officer. Captain Russell was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart for his actions in battle. He is survived by his mother, Patti, his father, Jim and his brother, James.
In Captain Russell's remembrance we have established a scholarship for Western Michigan University's students. All proceeds for the Captain Drew Russell Memorial 5K will go towards that scholarship to deserving cadets.
