Support the Kenny Bragg Memorial Fund

Michigan Tech student Kenneth (Kenny) Bragg, 22, was killed Saturday, December 30, 2023, in a house explosion in the suburbs of Detroit Michigan, along with his parents, Hope '95 and Don '92 Bragg, who were both Tech forestry alumni, and a younger sister, Elizabeth. Kenny, a lifelong resident of Arkansas, was a senior anthropology major in the Department of Social Sciences and was scheduled to graduate this spring. Kenny was working on his senior thesis with Dr. Carl Blair on pre-European salt manufacture in Arkansas, particularly the activities of the Caddo cultures, and had completed three summer field seasons and significant volunteer work with the Arkansas archaeological survey.

In addition to being an excellent student with a broad range of interests, Kenny was an active member of the Pep Band, played and reffed broomball, and was an active explorer at sites of regional interest. His plans included staying at Michigan Tech and completing a master's in industrial archaeology, working on field research at the Delaware Mine.

The Michigan Tech archaeology program, the wider field of archaeology, and most importantly, all of Kenny's friends and colleagues have suffered a great loss from his death. He will be remembered as a good friend, a leader among his peers, and a person with whom it was a pleasure to work.

In Kenny's honor, there is hope to establish a scholarship. Gifts received are intended to create an endowed scholarship which requires a minimum amount of $25,000 to endow; however, if the minimum endowment amount is not received, an annual scholarship will be established.
