Reading week marks a week off for students. It is a nice chance to catch up on some sleep, your favorite shows, hang out with friends and just relax. Unfortunately tragedy has struck our campus as we mourn the loss of a first year Communication Arts Student, Sarah Plumer.
I did not know Sarah personally, but the amount of support and sadness over social media has made me aware of the impact she had on our campus. I want to remind each one of you who is affected by this loss, to seek help and do not keep what you are feeling bottled inside. Grieving is a process which our campus will go through together. We all grieve differently. Some of us are shocked, angry, depressed, in denial, or deeply upset by what has happened to Sarah. I encourage those who are affected by this tragedy to talk to someone. Whether that is talking with a friend or visiting counselling services here at Lethbridge College. You are not alone.
