The Samford community will pause at noon on Thursday, April 19, to pay respects to those who perished at Virginia Tech this week. The simple ceremony will be held on Centennial Walk and will consist of the chiming of the hour, a wreath-laying, and the playing of a hymn. "It is a small gesture, but it will allow us to join our hearts in solidarity with our peers and colleagues in Virginia," said Samford president Andrew Westmoreland.
