In a message to the university community, App State Chancellor Sheri Evans stated “His family’s wishes are for the university to share a common call to action so our entire campus community recognizes the importance of following COVID-19 safety protocols and guidelines. Despite generally being at lower risk for severe illness, college-age adults can become seriously ill from COVID-19.”
