Braden Story’s friends and family honour his memory with the Braden Story Memorial Fund

Braden Story had a special connection with everyone he met. He looked up to and is greatly missed by his older brothers Evan and Conner along with his adoring parents, Tom and Doris. Braden passed away suddenly on Wednesday, September 2, 2020.

As a testament to Braden’s leadership, warmth and charisma, his parents created the Braden Story Memorial Award in his honour. Braden’s many friends and family members have raised more than $34,000 in support of the award to date. The Braden Story Memorial Award will be given out for the first time in the 2021/22 academic year. This award will support full-time, senior undergraduate students in the Honours BA Economics program who demonstrate high academic achievement and financial need.

Braden displayed a thirst for knowledge from a very young age. He encouraged his peers as he helped many of them pursue their own achievements. His warmth, compassion and constant smile were part of his magnetic personality that brought people together and joy to his family, friends and co-workers.

Braden graduated from the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics in the spring of 2016. From his program, he was the sole recipient on the Dean’s list, Honours, Applied Economics. Braden’s will and determination enabled him to succeed in all areas of his life including playing lacrosse for his alma mater.

The Braden Story Memorial Award has been endowed at Laurier and will continue to carry on Braden’s legacy for years and years to come. Visit the Braden Story Memorial Award giving page to make a gift in Braden’s memory. All donations are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
