ASU held a candlelight remembrance ceremony Tuesday night in the CJ Davidson Center in honor of 111 former faculty and staff and alumni who passed in the last year.

"This is our fourth year to do this," Brittney Miller, marketing specialist for ASU, said. "Our motto ‘fiat lux’ (‘let there be light’) is why you see the candlelight service: to honor those passed Rams."

The ceremony welcomed the families of deceased individuals of ASU to show respect and remind them that the lost will never be forgotten.

"It is a humbling experience," junior Brayden Woods said. "All the families come together; it really shows the Ram Fam spirit that we have."

University President Dr. Brian J. May expressed the school’s grief and sorrow but reminded the families present to rejoice in their loved ones’ lives and the time they experienced on campus.

The service included live piano music, a Posting of Colors by AFROTC, and a poem written for the past Rams.
