A group of friends and co-workers gathered Monday, June 16, 2014 for a quiet moment to remember Shoreline Community College Prof. Troy Wolff.
Wolff, 46, died Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 after being stabbed the previous evening while walking in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle following a soccer match at Century Link Field. Wolff’s girlfriend who was with him was injured and survived.
Co-workers and friends donated funds to buy a stone bench that was recently installed on campus. While a more public event is planned for this fall, a group came together for moment of reflection on Wolff’s life.
In addition to the bench to honor Wolff, the Troy Wolff Humanities Scholarship has been established at the Shoreline Community College Foundation.
Wolff was a beloved and respected English faculty at Shoreline for 17 years. In addition to teaching composition and literature, Troy also participated in the college’s study abroad program, taking students to Costa Rica, Spain, Greece and Turkey. He was chair of the English Department at the time of his tragic death.
