We remember the fallen at "Celebration of Life."  

As it does every year, Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) will gather as a community to remember fallen alumni, students, faculty and staff at the sixth annual “Celebration of Life” memorial Tuesday, April 5, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the TAMIU Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall.

This event provides members of the expansive TAMIU community an opportunity to remember alumni, students, faculty and staff who have passed away in the past year, to celebrate their lives, and to move forward together.

“It is a touching service which celebrates and memorializes the lives of people who have been part of our TAMIU family,” explained Yelitza Howard, TAMIU ‘s director of Alumni Relations.

Special musical performances will be offered by Dr. Colin Campbell, University Organist; Dana Crabtree and the TAMIU Choir , and the Memorial Bells of First United Methodist Church.

After the service, participants will join the TAMIU Choir and walk to the University’s fountain between Dr. F. M. Canseco Hall and Georgia A. and Anthony B. Pellegrino Hall and sing  “ Amazing Grace.”

A Reception will be held for family and friends in the Helen Richter Watson Gallery in the Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library.

University representatives will be present to help answer questions on how guests can commemorate their loved ones further at TAMIU, she noted.
