To: Lafayette Campus Community
From: Daniel H. Weiss, President
I am deeply saddened to inform you of the death of Everett Glenn, a student in the Class of 2015.
Everett was pronounced dead at Easton Hospital this afternoon. He had been transported there from his campus residence hall room by ambulance after the Northampton County Dispatch Center (911) and the College’s Office of Public Safety had been alerted about a possible medical emergency. The cause of death is being investigated by the Northampton County Coroner’s Office and the Easton Police Department, assisted by the Office of Public Safety. Investigators have indicated that as of this point in the investigation, there is no sign of foul play involved.
My thoughts are with Everett’s parents and other family members at this extremely difficult time. I extend to them my heartfelt condolences. My thoughts are also with our students and all members of our community who share in this tragic loss.
There will be an opportunity for prayer with Everett’s family and friends at 10 p.m. this evening in Colton Chapel.
Counselors will continue to be available at the Counseling Center this evening and in the days to come. The phone number is x5005.
Additional information will be shared with the campus community as it becomes available.
