Northwest announces bell ringing to remember Lonnae Young

Add to Calendar

The Northwest Missouri State University community is invited to remember Lonnae Young during a bell ringing ceremony at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, at the Bell of ’48.

Young, a junior psychology major from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, died unexpectedly Feb. 16. She was a resident assistant on the second floor of Dieterich Hall and was involved with Sigma Society and TRIO.

Last month, in remembrance of Young and to honor her positive impact and influence on the Northwest campus, the University also renamed its Influential Woman of Northwest Award for students with her name.

The Bell of '48, located near the front of the Administration Building, is rung in memory of any member of the University community, and to announce other events deemed important by Student Senate and the administration.

Northwest reminds the campus community that counseling is always available at Wellness Services from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and by calling 660.562.1348. Individuals needing assistance outside of regular office hours are encouraged to contact University Police at 660.562.1254. Faculty and staff may call the University employee assistance program at 800.964.3577. A county counseling support line also is available to members of the Northwest community at 888.279.8188.
