Fitchburg Mourns the Passing of Brandon Harris

Fitchburg Mourns the Passing of Brandon Harris

To the Campus Community:

Our community mourns the death of one of our students with the news that Exercise and Sports Science major Brandon Harris of San Bernardino, California, passed away last week in his home state. Brandon also played as a valued member of the men's basketball team. No additional information is available at this time.

For those who knew Brandon and are trying to process the news, know that our community mourns with you. As always, Counseling Services is available to provide support for students when you return to campus, while faculty and staff may avail themselves of our Employee Assistance Program.

Funeral arrangements are unknown as of this writing.

I join all of you in expressing our sincerest condolences to Brandon's family, parents and friends at this very difficult time.


Richard S. Lapidus, Ph.D.
