By now you’ve heard about Jonathan Kreuger, the 22-year-old UK student that was murdered early Friday morning while walking home on UK’s campus. Kreuger was the photo editor at the Kentucky Kernel and his death is a senseless tragedy that sent shockwaves through the community. Tonight, the Kernel will hold a memorial service for Kreuger at 8 p.m. at Memorial Hall on UK’s campus. The service will be open to everyone to come and pay their respects, and the Kernel is putting together a scrapbook of messages and photos from Jonathan’s friends to give to his family.
The Kernel has also set up a scholarship fun in Jonathan’s memory, and so far, over $17,000 has been raised. To learn more and donate, please click here.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the Kreuger family, his friends, and the staff at the Kernel in this difficult time.
