While welcoming the Class of 2019, President Alger took a moment to remember Alison Parker, a recent JMU alumna who was tragically killed yesterday morning alongside her colleague Adam Ward. Alison’s passing is a huge loss to the JMU family and we all continue to extend our thoughts and prayers. Once a Duke, always a Duke.

Together with the Parker family, JMU has established a memorial scholarship fund in the School of Media Arts and Design to honor alumna Alison Parker. She is being remembered for her bright personality, dedication to community service and love of JMU.
