Statement from Dr. Shirley I. Metcalf
We are devastated to hear of the recent developments in the tragic death of Kaylee Sawyer. We extend our deepest condolences to Kaylee’s family and friends.
Words cannot begin to express our heartbreak that this crime took place on our campus and that the suspect was a member of our public safety staff. As we move forward we will seek to provide an environment of healing and comfort for our College community, and the communities that we serve.
In the days, weeks and months ahead, I ask that you join me in keeping Kaylee’s family in the forefront of your thoughts and prayers.
