It is with sadness that I write to inform you of two student deaths which occured over the winter break period:

  • Scott T. Millar Jr., a sophomore Physical Education and Sport major from Hellam, on December 27, 2009, at Memorial Hospital. Mr. Millar was enrolled for the Spring 2010 semester. A funeral service was held December 31, 2009.
  • Angela Martin, a freshman from Kittanning, on January 7, 2010, following injuries from a traffic accident. A memorial service for Ms. Martin was held January 10.

The death of any member of the IUP community is tragic and difficult to bear. I am sure you join me in expressing concern and sympathy for Mr. Millar and Ms. Martin's friends and families.
