 Message from the President

April 14, 2014

Dear Campus Community,

Cal Maritime will hold a memorial service to celebrate the life of Cadet Austin Ray Vancil in Rizza Auditorium on Wednesday, April 16 from 7:00 until 7:45 AM.

Our entire community of faculty, staff and students are invited. Cal Maritime student leadership will have a prominent role in this time of reflection. In remembrance of Austin and in honor of his family, the Cal Maritime flag will be lowered to half-mast on the day of the service.

I trust that you will be able to join this gathering of support for Austin’s family and friends.

At the conclusion of the ceremony in Rizza Auditorium, you are invited to a gathering with Austin’s family in the Dining Center “Compass Room” (top floor) from 8:00-9:00 AM. Those who wish to offer personal condolences to the family will have the opportunity to do so at that time.


In service,

Thomas A. Cropper
President
California State University Maritime Academy
