When a student dies

Today the JSchool mourns the death of Lianne Vernell, a journalism student from Athens, Ohio. Lianne died on Monday in a Columbus hospital.

When we lose a student so suddenly we can’t help but realize that life is both precious and fragile. Lianne was known for her music, which will help us remember her. I will remember her lively performances in “Pippin” and “Little Women,” performed here in Athens in 2006 and 2007.

Our thoughts are with her family, and with her classmates who will miss her.
