On the Passing of Tessa Majors

Updated: Mar 2, 2021

By the Editorial Board of The Blue and White

Tessa Majors was a vibrant and talented artist whose fire was taken too soon. This terrible act of random violence is felt throughout campus in sadness and shock. We here at The Blue and White would like for our readers to remember Tess as a shining rockstar, friend, daughter, and sister. Please honor her memory by sending your love to her friends, family, and yours.
