A Supportive Community

Friends and classmates of Yoselin Deleon, Jennifer Guzman, Akuel Majouk and Mariana Ramirez gather together following a memorial Mass at St. John’s Church on Oct. 25. The four young women, three of whom were current students and one a former student, were killed in an automobile accident on a stretch of highway near Beatrice, Neb., after swerving to avoid a deer.

“We gather tonight in remembrance of our classmates, our students, our sisters, our daughters, our friends,” Creighton President the Rev. Daniel S. Hendrickson, S.J., said during the memorial. “We do so in sadness, but we do so in solidarity. We are Creighton. And we are community.”
