SOUTHEASTERN’S “GOLDEN SILENCE” TO HONOR DECEASED MARCH 30 
      HAMMOND -- The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association will host the Golden Silence memorial service at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 30 in the Student Union Park.  
      Golden Silence is designed to honor deceased Southeastern alumni, students, faculty and staff.
      "People are the vital link for our university, whether they are students, alumni, faculty, staff, even friends and supporters," said alumni director Kathy Pittman. "Even when a person is gone, their spirit lives on; so often, it lives on here at Southeastern."  
      President Randy Moffett will light a  memorial candle and Southeastern Provost John Crain, and vice presidents Joseph Miller, Stephen Smith and Brad O’Hara will read the approximately 160 names on the “memorial roll call.” The brief program also will feature a performance of the university's alma mater by Southeastern music professor Joy Ratliff, and a rendition of “Taps” by music students.
      The public is invited to attend. For additional information, contact the Alumni Association at 985-549-2150 or 1-800-SLU-ALUM.
