Manual graduate one of those killed

It hits close to home when you find out that a Louisville high school graduate was one of those killed.
Brian Bluhm, 25, who was finishing up a master's degree in water resources at Virginia Tech, graduated from Manual in 2000 after attending its High School University Magnet program, said spokeswoman Lauren Roberts of Jefferson County Public Schools.

Roberts said last night that Manual Principal Beverly Keepers recalled Bluhm as a National Honor Society member and "very smart."

"He was a little quiet ... but just a really nice young man," Roberts added.

Bluhm grew up in Iowa and later Michigan, where he began his attachment to the Detroit Tigers baseball team, before spending his high school years in Louisville. His family later moved to Virginia, and he considered Blacksburg his home, said his former roommate, Michael Marshall of Richmond, Va.
May he rest in peace.
