Ben Clough Memorial

This endowed scholarship was established in memory of Ben Clough. Ben died in a bicycle/car accident in 1998 while a student in ACC’s Digital Publishing & Graphics Technology program. Ben was 25 years old when he passed away and was a very remarkable person. He worked a “more than” full time job while attending ACC and was quite motivated. Ben was an artist and Mac computer expert. In partnership with a screen printer artist friend, he produced beautiful posters for local events. He was an avid bicyclist and volunteered his time and energy at the Yellow Bike Project and with other cycling related organizations. Ben’s bike was his mode of transportation as he chose not to own a car or have a driver’s license. He was a very unique and creative person and though he only lived in Austin for four years, he left his mark.
