Annette January and Lashuntae Benton awarded degrees

Southern University Baton Rouge awarded posthumous undergraduate degrees to Lashuntae Benton and Annette January during its spring commencement exercises Friday, May 13, 2016, in the F.G. Clark Activity Center. Benton was awarded a degree in therapeutic recreation and leisure studies, and January was awarded a degree in business management. Lashuntae Benton's mother Theresa Washington Tillman accepted the commemorative diploma from SU System President Ray L. Belton. Annette January's mother Dawn January and her sisters Casey received the memorial degree from Belton and SU Board of Supervisors member Raymond Fondel.

"The Southern University family has been devastated by the recent deaths of Lashuntae Benton and Annette January. Each of these young ladies embodied the values and spirit of Southern University. We ask that the Jaguar Nation and the Baton Rouge community join us in lifting the Benton and January families in our prayers during this difficult time," said Roman Banks, interim SUBR athletic director.

In memory of Benton who was a native of Lake Charles and a therapeutic recreation and leisure studies major, and of January, a management major from Gary, Indiana, the SUBR Student Government Association is holding a candlelight vigil, Tuesday, April 12, 2016, at 6 p.m. in the courtyard of the Smith-Brown Memorial Student Union.

University officials have been in contact with the victims' families and are providing support and assistance.
