Praying for Boston

Posted on April 16, 2013.

Flags halfstaff 2Dear HPU Family,

We extend our thoughts and prayers to all those impacted, directly and indirectly, by the Boston bombing yesterday. The High Point University campus is home to students from 47 states and 34 countries – with many from the Boston area. Because we are a national and international community, we understand that the impact of this tragedy is felt well beyond the borders of any one city.

The flags on campus will be flown at half-staff until April 20, 2013. The Charles E. Hayworth Sr. Chapel will be open for a time of private reflection on Wednesday, April 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Our counselors are also available to offer support. While we mourn this tragic event, let us also recognize the beauty and power of living in a caring and supportive community.

Sincerely, Nido R. Qubein
