AustinRHL

Post by quizbowl » June 19th, 2013, 12:03 pm

A former member of the Albuquerque Academy Science Olympiad team, AustinRHL represented the team at four national tournaments, earning two medals (4th in Cell Biology, 5th in Environmental Chemistry) in his senior year. He attended UChicago for the past three years, majoring in biochemistry.

After going missing this past Wednesday during a large derecho, a manhunt began, and he was discovered in Lake Michigan today.

While I did not know AustinRHL extremely well, we had met a few times on campus, and we discussed scioly, school, women, and just life. He was smiling, bright as the sun, and seemed like a great guy. While his presence on the forum hasn't been as active since his high school years, he helped with the Wiki, answered questions, and kept us updated on his home state of New Mexico. I wish that I could've known him better, as all of his friends could only describe you with praise. My heart, and the hearts of Scioly.org, goes out to his family during this tumultuous time.

Rest in peace, AustinRHL.
