The Brandon Matsumoto Memorial Scholarship Fund was established because Brandon had a passion for life, for travel, exploring new cultures and meeting new people. The trait that most defined him was his incredible compassion for those who were less fortunate than himself. Although he was unable to fulfill his desired future career helping others, through you, the recipient of this scholarship, we hope to assist you in meeting your own future career goals. Brandon would be very proud to know that this scholarship is set up in his name to help others like yourself. Best wishes in your future career endeavors. Sincerely, The Family and Friends of Brandon
