FAMU Student Remembered

September 17th, 2009 by flanews

Thousands are mourning the loss of a Florida A&M student who died after contracting a viral form of meningitis.

FAMU students gathered on campus this afternoon to remember Courtney Simms, the senior journalism major who died Monday. James Hawkins, the FAMU Dean of the School of Journalism, says counselors have been on hand to help students grieve.

We have had some counseling sessions and Ive asked faculty to spend a little time in each of the courses so students can talk about their experiences with Courtney so those kinds of things will help us as we start the process of healing and recovery, said Hawkins.

Simms was living off campus at the time of her death. FAMU health officials dont think she spread the virus to any other students.
