A vigil will be held at 9 p.m. in Hawkins arena in honor of Jibri Bryan, a Mercer basketball player who was killed Tuesday.

President Underwood recently offered Hawkins Arena for students to hold the vigil.

University Minister and Dean of Chapel Craig McMahan will say a few words and a short prayer. Then Stanley Roberts, associate dean of Mercer’s Townsend School of music, will sing “Amazing Grace.”

Candles will be provided, and there will be a moment of silence. The event is scheduled to last 10 to 15 minutes. Students, faculty and the community are invited to stay as long as they would like.
