President Trudie Kibbe Reed and the Bethune-Cookman University family today are mourning the tragic loss of sophomore student Primas Christopher Foulks.
"On behalf of the entire university family, we extend our condolences to Mr. Foulks' family and loved ones and we will lift them up in prayer during this incredibly difficult time," said President Reed.
Foulks, a 23-year-old mass communications major from Columbia, S.C., was a member of the Marching Wildcats Band. The university will be providing grief counselors on campus to help those in need of support.
