Remembering Sammi

The Current pays tribute to student artist Sammi Simancas who died Nov 4. 

A vigil was held for student Sammi Simancas on Nov. 21 in the CVA Gallery. The Brookdale community cele- brated Sammi’s life, her talent and her art (featured at right). Students, faculty and staff were welcomed to speak about Sammi’s life. They created remembrance lanterns, decorated positive messages on them and placed tea lights inside. The students then placed them in a line outside of the building.
