University of Missouri students and faculty joined together Monday night, to honor former MU professor Dr. Arvarh E. Strickland with a candlelight vigil.
The MU Legion of Black Collegians student government (LBC) and the iGUIDE Leadership Team hosted the event just outside of Strickland Hall, for whom the building was named, in memory of MU’s first-tenured black professor who passed away on April 30 at age 82.
The band of LifeBridge Lutheran Church practices in the community room of an apartment complex each Sunday morning before service begins. Furniture is piled in the corner to their left, and gym equipment in the corner to the right. Though they don’t have their own building to worship in, it’s progress for LifeBridge – a year ago, the church didn’t even exist.
