Release Date: December 1, 2021
SOUTHFIELD—Lawrence Technological University will hold a candlelight vigil in memory of the students killed and injured Tuesday at Oxford High School. The vigil will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, at the LTU Spirit Rock near the University’s Donley Residence Hall.

Several Oxford High School alumni attend Lawrence Tech, including a former member of the Oxford football team who knew one of the slain students.

LTU President Virinder Moudgil and several students will offer remarks at the vigil.

“We are saddened by this loss,” Moudgil said. “Lawrence Tech and Oxford High School have had a long and productive relationship. Our hearts go out to the students and their families during this difficult time.”
