The Student Government Association will host the annual Golden Eagle Memorial Service Tuesday, April 15 which honors students, faculty and staff who passed away during the 2013-14 academic year. The service begins at 6:30 p.m. in room 218 of the Thad Cochran Center on the Hattiesburg campus.

The Student Government Association initiated the Golden Eagle Memorial Service in 2003.

“It is our desire that, through this memorial service, the spirit of these students, faculty and staff members we memorialize will remain in our hearts,” said Dean of Students Dr. Eddie Holloway. “We also hope it provides more closure for family members and friends of the deceased, as we demonstrate the love and deep appreciation we have for those who have passed.”
