Logan Lusk Angel Memorial Fund set to help student reach their dreams

PICKENS — On Feb. 22, the lives of the Lusk family were changed forever. On this day, the family lost a beloved son and best friend, Logan Lusk.

Logan was tragically killed in a car accident while traveling back to the campus of Lander University after attending a martial arts class.

Logan, who was a sophomore chemistry major at Lander, was a 2016 Pickens High School graduate. While at PHS, he had been a member of the school’s football, baseball and golf teams.

Lusk was a resident student of Lander, an orientation leader and a student assistant in the Office of Enrollment Management.

In an effort to honor Logan, his family has established the “Logan Lusk Angel Memorial Fund.” Through this fund, students will be able to apply for assistance to carry on Logan’s dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. Logan was a very humble and kind person who lived his life to the fullest. He excelled in both academics and athletics, and his family would like to be able to offer support to students in Logan’s memory. The scholarship fund will be available to students at Lander University. The family also plans to provide $150 of the money raised to the Pickens High School football, baseball and golf programs.

The family has several ways in which to raise money in order to support the scholarship fund, and their wish is to help students like Logan reach their goals.

Donations can be made at any TD Bank branch into the “Logan Lusk Angel Memorial Fund.” The family appreciates the support of their family and friends during this time.

“He’s our angel and our shining star,” said Angela Lusk, Logan’s mother.
