Memorial Held for Kansas State Student Killed in Chicago

KSAL StaffAugust 26, 2015

A Kansas State University student who was killed in Chicago was remembered for her positive attitude and beaming smile.

The Kansas State Black Student Union organized a memorial Tuesday night for 22-year-old Briona White, who was shot to death Aug. 6 in Chicago. White was killed days before she was to return to Manhattan to finish her degree to be an orthodontist.

KMAN reports about 60 people attended the memorial, including White’s parents. Her parents said White was anxious to return to Kansas State. They urged those in attendance to strive to be the best they can be and thanked them for remembering their daughter.

Associate biology professor Kent Kerby spoke fondly of White’s attitude and smile, while other speakers urged students to confront the issue of gun violence.
