TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL/AP) - Joshua Quick was honored at the Florida State University Board of Trustees meeting on Friday.
Quick was given the key to the City of Tallahassee Thursday night due to his quick thinking and physical efforts in the Hot Yoga tragedy.
FSU President John Thrasher along with the board gave him a surprise of a lifetime.
They have committed $30,000 of their personal money to help cover law school costs for Quick.
"We don't have a key to give him, but I will tell you what we are going to do with the dean's leadership. We are going to start an effort to raise enough money to take care of his expenses at law school," said Thrasher.
The Law School Dean and President Thrasher made the first donations in this fund.
Quick is a second-year law student at Florida State.
