Clemson mourns the death of Chardrevius “Dre” Martin, 22, of Dewy Rose, Georgia. Dre passed away on May 20, 2016. He graduated in May with a degree in Language and International Health (L&IH) and served as the president of the L&IH Society. He studied abroad in Seville, Spain, where he also completed an internship. Dre was awarded the L&IH Award of Excellence in Research at the 2015-2016 College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities (CAAH) Honors and Awards Ceremony in April.

Dre inspired others with his intense commitment and passion for serving multicultural communities through the field of public health. “I am motivated, hardworking, and determined about life and making a difference in the lives of those who are disproportionately affected by disease,” Dre said. “I see myself working in the U.S. and Latin American countries helping to decrease health disparities through a primary care and prevention based practice.”

Faculty and staff of the Department of Languages would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to Dre Martin’s family.

As a tribute to Dre, ClemsonTV shared a video that is currently being featured at Experience Clemson in downtown Greenville:
