Dear Campus Community,
It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that one of our students, Ally Davis, passed away over the weekend. Ally, 21, was a senior musical theater major from Banner, Kentucky. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ally's friends and family.
Ally's talent was only matched by the size of her heart and smile. She touched many lives in the School of the Arts. Loved by her classmates and a true friend, she will be missed as a member of our Norse family. She prepared for a career as a musical theatre actress and was involved in numerous organizations in the community, including Kings Island, the Jenny Wiley Theatre and the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts. The dedication to which she pursued her craft was an inspiration to all.
We know that the loss of one of our students deeply impacts our campus community and I ask that you care for one another during this difficult time. There is support available for anyone impacted by Ally's passing by calling Health, Counseling and Student Wellness at (859) 572-5650.
Please know you are all important members of our Norse family, and we care deeply about every one of you.
With my deepest sympathy,
