Anonymous donor pays debt for deceased UC student


(KTSF by Trista Wang) Today is the graduation  ceremony for the Financial Engineering MBA program at UC Berkeley.  And the ceremony started with a moment of silence to  remember a fallen student- Arthur Qi.

Aurthur Qi died two weeks before his MBA graduation ceremony, and 90 days before his 32nd birthday. However this tragic story also shows the goodness in people.

The director of the Master of Financial Engineering at UC Berkeley, Linda Kreitzman said, Qi’s classmates helped raise $26,000 dollars from the Chinese community. In the mean time, a viewer who watched KTSF’s news coverage decided to make a generous donation.

“There is an anonymous donor, who again a wink to you KTSF, stepped up and wrote a check to take care of the huge loan back in China for Aurthur’s MBA study.  We can’t disclose the name of the donor nor the amount but I am personally deeply grateful,” Kreitzman said.

Qi’s family left for China last Saturday with his ashes and had a family funeral this Monday. The director of the program said all of the students and the faculty won’t forget Aurthur and his family. The program also set up a foundation after Qi’s name.
