We extend our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the Andrews and Caldwell families. Our universities were created to cultivate potential through the pursuit of knowledge. Mr. Andrews, a senior, no longer has the opportunity to obtain the bright future he was working toward. We are committed to fostering a culture of safety among our institutions and violence will not be tolerated. It is especially heartbreaking for the Grambling community to deal with this senseless tragedy in the midst of homecoming week, a time when students and alumni should be celebrating the spirit of one of the nation’s most historic universities. President Gallot and his team are leading the response on campus and assisting local authorities during this investigation. We are here to support him in any way we can.
