On Saturday (Feb. 1), the Beloit College community will be gathering to celebrate the lives of two of our own: Justine Ringberg’13 and Raquel Nunez’13. The celebration will take place at 11 a.m. in Eaton Chapel.
A team of students, with the support and guidance of Bill Conover and other faculty and staff, are planning a program that will honor these two through pictures, music, and the words of those who knew and loved them. Beloiters will also have the opportunity to include messages to Justine and Raquel’s families as part of a scrapbook; you can mail memories and messages to the family at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As President Scott Bierman wrote in an email to campus, “[This event is] an opportunity for our community to heal, and to help heal. Let's come together on Saturday to do all of that work--to celebrate, remember, and comfort ourselves and each other.”
