Tonight at 7 pm and as part of homecoming week, the University will be holding a “Ram Remembrance Ceremony” in the C. J. Davidson Center.
A number of years ago when this ceremony was first established, I was asked to find and read a poem that would be appropriate for the occasion. Unable to find something fitting, I composed the poem above and have read it at the ceremony each year since. Tonight, I’ll be reading it again.
More information on the ceremony is at the link below, which includes a list of those faculty, staff, and students who have passed in the last year, including two retired from our own department: Dr. Wallace Bost and Dr. Perry Gragg.
