The Public Affairs Reporting program at the University of Illinois at Springfield has created a website and scholarship in honor of former OC Weekly intern Nguyen Huy Vu, who died from a stroke on Mother's Day at the age of 34.
Vu, who grew up in Orange County's Little Saigon, also worked at the Orange County Register, Seattle Times, Nguoi Viet, the Associated Press and finally at the Daily Breeze in Torrance, where he covered education issues.
