ROE CLOUD HALL- Haskell Indian Nations University has come together with heavy hearts. We have lost one of our own. Acting President Dr. Dan Wildcat, Vice President of University Services Tonia Salvini, and an officer from the Lawrence Police Department called a dorm meeting at Roe Cloud Hall tonight regarding the passing of Darrian Diwayan. Dr. Wildcat addressed those in attendance.

“Campus is in mourning, it is a great tragedy to lose a family member. That’s was Haskell is, a family. During times like this we stay strong and come together. I have spoken with her family and have expressed our deepest condolences on behalf of the university. Right now, students are organizing something in remembrance of Darrian. With the help of facilities, a fire will be built on front of the auditorium as soon as possible “

The LPD officer took the time to stay and help answer any questions students might have and offered his prayers and condolences to family and friends. Students, faculty, and staff gathered in the second-floor lobby of Roe Cloud to offer their support.

Rooms on the first and second floor of Roe Cloud have been open for students who need support to come and talk to counselors from Haskell and Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center. The smudge and mediation rooms are also available to students who wish to use them. Any Haskell student who needs support or just needs to talk to can make an appointment at the Haskell Indian Health Center by calling (785) 843-3750.

“No matter what you are going through, what you are struggling with, Do not be afraid to reach out for help. You are important. You are loved. We are family and we are hurting. Our hearts go out to the family.” said Student Senate President Lindsey Robinson.

Stay strong Haskell family.
