Candlelight vigil to be held tonight for student who died at Mt. Bachelor
A candlelight vigil will be held this Wednesday in the EMU amphitheater at 7:30 p.m. to honor Nicole Panet-Raymond, who died last weekend after a skiing accident at Mt. Bachelor.
Panet-Raymond, a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority on campus, was reported missing at Mt. Bachelor after a skiing accident last friday.
The vigil is being put on by the office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and all students are welcome to attend to remember Nicole, according to Kathryn Adkisson, president of Gamma Phi Beta.
A previous vigil was held last Sunday in Portland at Rieke Elementary School, where Panet-Raymond went to school.
“We are so fortunate to have a sister that was as generous and loving as Nicole, and the memories she has left us with will be remembered and honored,” Adkisson said.
If any students need emotional assistance or counseling they are encouraged to contact the counseling center at 541.346.3227.
