Students Organize Vigil to Remember Dean Johnson

Members of the Manship School and beyond are still mourning the tragic death of Dean Martin Johnson, and some students have gone above and beyond to remember his legacy.

An email from Mass Communication Associate Dean Josh Grimm announced that several students have organized "A Moment to Remember Dean Martin Johnson." The vigil will take place on the terrace of the Journalism Building on Thursday, Oct. 1 from 5-8p.m. 

Students can sign up for a 30 minute time slot here to write a letter, leave flowers, light a candle and simply remember Dean Johnson. 

Due to COVID limitations, a maximum of 45 people will be able to gather at once in increments of 30 minutes.

A video with messages about Dean Johnson will be played at the vigil. Students, faculty, friends, etc. can submit videos to be shown here. Students are asked to limit videos to under 2 minutes long and submit them by 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1.
