He participated in NIC Outdoor Pursuits trips and was involved in a variety of outdoor programs offered through the college. Proceeds will benefit the Brian Williams Memorial Scholarship, which was established to support students studying outdoor leadership at NIC.

The event will also include live music from the band “Broken Mantel,” door prizes, and a barbecue from 3 to 6 p.m. at Slate Creek Brewing Co.
