In Memory Of
Remembering Those We Lost
IN THE AFTERMATH of the December 10, 2022, automobile accident that resulted in the deaths of four MMA students, the MMA community grappled with feelings of shock, sadness, and uncertainty. Many felt the need to gather together and support each other during this time of sorrow. A candlelit vigil was organized on the Leavitt lawn for students, faculty, staff, and the Castine community. There were words of hope, shared grief, and remembrances of love and friendship. It was the best first step to honor the lives lost and to help the community grieve and move forward. A period of silence amid glowing candles let those assembled pay their respects at a small memorial.
Obituaries for the four students may be found in this issue’s Eight Bells section.
