It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of one of our current students, Brionna Eppers. Brionna was a bright and talented freshman, majoring in social work, and her presence on our campus will be deeply missed. Brionna’s memory will forever remain etched in the Northwestern State University community, as she was admired and beloved by many.

To honor Brionna’s memory and celebrate her life, services will be held on Saturday, May 20th at 11:00am at Grace Community Church located at 9400 Ellerbe Rd, Shreveport, LA 71106.

I want to extend my sincerest thoughts and prayers to Brionna’s family and friends during these difficult and troubling times. The entire NSU community shares in your grief and sorrow. Please know that our counseling and support services are available to all students, faculty, and staff who may need them.

As we mourn the loss of Brionna, let us also remember to celebrate her life and the positive impact that she had on our community. Brionna will always be remembered as a beloved member of the NSU family.
