Each year, the University of Mississippi family pauses to honor and remember the lives of students, faculty and staff members who died during the past year.

This year’s ceremony is set for 4 p.m. Thursday (May 4) at Paris-Yates Chapel. Established by Chancellor Emeritus Robert Khayat, University of Mississippi Memorial Day is observed on the last Thursday of classes.
The day is important for friends and family of the deceased, said Brandi Hephner LaBanc, vice chancellor for student affairs.
“The university memorial ceremony gives us the opportunity to recognize the students, faculty and staff members who are taken from us and whose passing leaves a void in the Ole Miss family,” she said.
The service will include music by the University String Quartet and remarks from Hephner LaBanc; Gazel Giles, Staff Council president; Michael Barnett, former chair of the Faculty Senate; and Dion Kevin, Associated Student Body president.
The ceremony, which is open to the LOU community, will honor:
