Student’s Death Postpones Inauguration

KSAL StaffOctober 31, 2014

Inauguration of Baker University’s new president has been postponed so the school can deal with the death of a student.

President Lynne Murray was supposed to celebrate her inauguration at 11 a.m. Thursday, but that and related events were canceled after she learned of the death of sophomore Sione Maumau.

Murray gave brief remarks at an all-university prayer service Thursday morning, stressing that classmates and teammates didn’t have to deal with their grief alone.

Maumau came to Baker from Boulder, Colorado, to play football. He was a member of the university’s speech choir and a resident assistant in the school’s dorm system.

Baker spokesman Steve Rottinghaus says no decision has been made about when or if Murray’s inauguration would be rescheduled.
