Thursday night was a time for celebrating the life of a College at Brockport student, who died in a tragic snowboarding accident.
22-year-old Austin White, who's from Livingston County, was killed on March 16th while snowboarding near Lake Placid.
Austin’s close friends and family came together at the College at Brockport to remember Austin’s life.
We spoke with Austin’s father, Roy White.
"This without a doubt was Austin's second hometown. He grew close to faculty and he had many, many friends here and he loved it here. It was a good match for him."
Austin was studying exercise science at Brockport. He was scheduled to graduate in May.
