Students Plan Moment of Reflection for Workers
UT Dallas student leaders are organizing a Moment of Reflection at noon Wednesday, July 11 on the campus mall to honor two construction workers who were killed July 7 in a crane collapse on campus.
The event is a response to student concern over the accident, said Dr. Gene Fitch, dean of students.
“This is a way in which we can honor the deceased and show our respect to the families of those who lost their loved ones. It also is an opportunity for us to grieve as a community,” Dr. Fitch said.
Student Government president Raj Dwivedi will address the gathering at “Spirit Rock,” just outside the Green Hall at the center of campus. Dr. Tom Linehan, director of the Arts and Technology program, also will offer remarks.
