Arkansas Tech University has installed a mailbox at the Ross Pendergraft Library and Technology Center for students, faculty and staff who wish to send a note of sympathy to the family of Daniel “Bryce” Briggs.
Briggs, 19, died on Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, as a result of burns suffered in an accident in his hometown of Royal in Garland County. He was a freshman mechanical engineering student at Arkansas Tech. Briggs lived in Nutt Residence Hall and was an active member of the Arkansas Tech Fishing Club.
The mailbox will be located on the first floor of the Pendergraft Library and Technology Center near the circulation desk. It will remain in place until the end of the day on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017, at which time the notes of condolence will be picked up and delivered to the family.
