It is with deep sorrow that I inform you of the passing of two of our students, Hannah Parham and Maddisen Martin. Hannah was a clinical radiology student and graduate of North Desoto High School. Maddisen was a 2018 graduate of Fairview High School in Grant Parish and a student in the ASN program at NSU’s Leesville campus.

Hannah and Maddisen will always be cherished and remembered for their dedication, intelligence, and compassion. Their legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of all who knew them. Please keep the family, friends, and acquaintances of Hannah Parham and Maddisen Martin in your thoughts and prayers.

Support is available through NSU’s Counseling Services for those that need assistance. Details on arrangements can be found below:
