Texas State is honoring its own. At a ceremony last week, several Bobcats -- among them faculty, staff and students -- were recognized. Bobcat Update's Jacey Yarbrough tells us about Bobcat Pause -- a ceremony to honor those who died this past year.
Tears were shed as friends and family stood to recognize their dead loved ones. The 30th annual Bobcat Pause honored 38 students and faculty who have passed away. Former student body President Andrew Homann, says the ceremony is important to bonding former and current bobcats.
The walls of the L-B-J ballroom were lined with tables filled with pictures, candles, and even favorite hats and flowers of the deceased. Renae Murdock stood proudly behind a picture of her mother, a former professor. Murdock says her mother's legacy will endure at Texas State.
The San Marcos High School choir performed before the service, and President Denise Trauth spoke about how much the past students and faculty meant to the university. Director of Bobcat Pause, Leanna Mouton, says everyone who attended the ceremony is connected.
