USF on Wednesday announced the creation of the Michael J. Radomski Memorial Scholarship Fund, named in memory of the former Bulls sports-information staffer who passed away in the fall of 2017.

Established through the USF Bulls Club, the scholarship will aid students working in USF's athletic department in capacities ranging from communications to digital media to marketing to ticket operations.

They'll be chosen in part based on their contributions, as well as "emulating the attributes displayed by Radomski, including passion, dedication and kindness," according to a USF news release.

"Mike was such a positive and impactful young man who had incredible passion for USF and for serving our student-athletes," athletic director Mark Harlan said.

"We felt it was very appropriate to honor his memory with a scholarship that will provide aid to students learning and working in USF Athletics, and serve to recognize and foster in those students the many outstanding traits Mike was so loved for."
