A memorial gathering for Tundun Lawani ’14, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident one year ago, will be held Monday evening on campus.

The memorial will begin at 7 p.m. at CFA with a candlelight vigil. Those assembled will walk to Seymour Union, accompanied by the Umoja Gospel Choir, of which Tundun was a member. The vigil will be followed by a memorial service in Seymour Union.

Candles will be provided, and all are welcome.
