ONLY ON 3: UNCW fraternity remembers brother

Friday, February 24th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW freshman and Tau Kappa Epsilon brother, Bryce Scott, died Friday morning. Tonight, his brothers say they’re refocusing their energy to remember Bryce.

“Immediately, we’ve lost that spirit that fire that he had,” said TKE President James Brown.

“It’s safe to say that he was probably one of the nicest guys,” said brother Jacob Roed. “He was always down to help with whatever we needed. He was always there. He always had his heart in the right place so he’s always a good spirit.”

The members of TKE say they have lost a brother. Members say 18-year-old Scott died Friday morning at his off-campus apartment. The details surrounding his death are still unknown but his fraternity brothers say Scott is already missed. They say Scott was the kind of brother that always went out of his way for the fraternity.

“He always had his heart in everything he did,” Brown said. “He was really dedicated and he had all the potential in the world so we’re really sad to see him go.”

TKE members say they plan to keep Scott’s spirit alive on campus by pushing forward and honoring his memory.

“He wouldn’t want us to sit around and lose all the momentum that we have,” Brown said. “We’re definitely going to just stick to all the events that we have planned. Just have the fire in us to honor him in everything we do.”

TKE says they are planning on hosting an event next Friday to raise money for Scott’s family. They say Scott will be missed by many.

“Nobody can say anything bad about the kid,” Roed said. “He was an amazing brother.”

Brown says although he cannot talk about how Scott died, he says it was in no way linked to any type of hazing. He says TKE has a strict zero tolerance policy. Bryce Scott would have turned 19 Saturday.
