Sad news

As some of you may know, today there was a shooting at Purdue University.

Sadly, one student was killed. That student was Andrew Boldt, a Team 1732 Alumni.

Please keep his friends and family in your prayers.

RIP.

Re: Sad news

For those who never met him, Andrew (Drew, never Andy) was a FIRST enthusiast and a quality friend. There is no sense in his death.

A short bio from his former teammate Katie B:
"Today, FRC Team 1732 Hilltopper Robotics lost our alum Andrew Boldt, the victim of today's Purdue University tragedy. Please keep him, his family, and our team in your prayers in this very tough time. He was a dedicated team member for four years, leading the electrical sub-team for two. A promising engineer as well as a role model for our community, he has always been an inspiration to those he met and will be missed dearly by all."

He was so close to graduation. Its not fair.

Re: Sad news

For those unfortunate enough to never meet Drew, he was the embodiment everything FIRST stands for. His freshman year he really wanted to join the robotics team but his parents wanted him to focus on school, so he just became a key member of one of our fall VEX teams. He was the electrical subteam leader for his junior and senior seasons, when he played a huge rule in our breakout 2010 season. Since graduating, he always kept in contact with the team. At the Boilermaker Regional the past two seasons, he would give personal tours to our students, not only showing them the school, but showing where FIRST can take them. He would always take time to tell the mentors about his quad helicopter project or his work on efficient engines during his summer internships. Drew was destined to be a great success and was already a shining example of where FIRST can take an individual.

Re: Sad news

Cannot believe this type of tragedy can hit close to home. I think sometimes you forget just how small the world really is.

Rest in peace, Andrew, I wish I had met you.

Let us hope that one day, the only shooters are those lobbing exercise balls into the high goal. Sad to lose one of us like this.
