Statement from Dr. Steve Scott, PSU President:

“The campus is saddened to hear of Michael's death,” said President Scott. “Michael was a dedicated professional who was making a real difference in our university's sustainability efforts. The loss is even more painful because we all know and work closely with Michael's wife, Cate, who is our university's landscape architect. On behalf of the entire university community, I offer my deepest condolences to Cate and Michael's family.”

Michael Breneman had worked as a contract energy conservation specialist with Pittsburg State since 2011. Services are pending at this time.
