Samford University Student Passes Away Unexpectedly
Samford University mourns one of its own.
Student LaKim Young was found dead, apparently from natural causes, Tuesday morning (April 30) in his room in Samford's Beeson Woods residential village. Young was a sophomore theatre major from Birmingham, Al.
The Department of Theatre and Dance held a vigil Tuesday night (April 30) on the Quad, in front of the Bolding-Swearingen Theatre Building, to celebrate the life of their dear friend and fellow artist. Hundreds of students laughed and cried during the service, as they remembered their dear friend.
Samford University is deeply saddened by the news, and holds LaKim's family and friends in our prayers.
